Legendary producer Chris Tsangarides will be talking about his career, current and future projects with Malcom Dome this Saturday between 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. BST on Total Rock. In addition, Canadian metal legends ANVIL will be joining Chris to talk about their Tsangarides-produced forthcoming album and upcoming biopic written and directed by "The Terminal"'s Sacha Gervasi.
The 1970s led the way in sound recordings through experimentation and diversity of techniques. Through this determined approach to production a few modern day saints were borne from this process. Chris Tsangarides cut his teeth at the legendary Morgan Studios in 1975 which later became Battery Studios. Producing his first record at the tender age of 21 has since accelerated him through the studio honors system to work with a wealth of talent from THIN LIZZY to DEPECHE MODE. Chris has worked closely on the ascent of the sound that makes Britain great: BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST, Joan Armatrading, HUMAN LEAGUE, JAPAN, Tom Jones, Shazay Lewis, Phil Lynott and Gary Moore, Bruce Dickinson, Gilbert O'Sullivan and NEW MODEL ARMY.
This year sees Chris open his Ecology Room Studios in Kent which starts a new chapter in a career that has spanned 30 years. His current projects include the continuation of a relationship with Canadian metal gods ANVIL that started in 1982, as Chris produces their new album and scores the soundtrack for ANVIL's forthcoming drama-documentary (the album recordings will be filmed and directed by "The Terminal"'s Sacha Gervasi). Straight after that Chris is recording Japanese über-band ANTHEM as they go into the studio once again.
What's next for Chris? "More producing, I really don't know anything else," he says.
