Eyal Levi, Joey Sturgis: will kick off the next "Unstoppable Recording Machine" audio boot camp workshop
ORLANDO, Fla. - Eyal Levi, critically acclaimed guitarist, composer, producer and engineer, and renowned producer, Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men, I See Stars), will kick off the next "Unstoppable Recording Machine" audio boot camp workshop tomorrow at Levi's private studio in Orlando, Fla. Special guests, guitarist/songwriter/producer Keith Merrow and drummer Alex Rüdinger (Conquering Dystopia, ex-The Faceless), will join Levi and Sturgis for 40-plus hours of personalized recording instruction over the next four days.

"People who have gone through the boot camp experience have told me that they learned more in four days than in their entire recording school career to date," said Levi. "When I was coming up, I would have given anything to have some of my recording heroes sit me down and tell me 'this is how it's done.'"
"Whether you struggle with recording, production, editing or mixing and mastering, this boot camp is going to help you learn directly from successful people in the field," commented Sturgis. "It's not about tips or tricks. It's about real knowledge that can only come from real experience. Come extract that directly at the source."
Levi describes the "Unstoppable Record Machine" boot camps as "intense, hands-on, comprehensive immersion style experiences that will show people exactly what matters when trying to make pro sounding recordings. In just a few days, we will cover what would take a year or more in traditional school." He has already hosted successful workshops in Cleveland, Ohio, Orlando, Fla. and Portland, Ore., which have featured special guests like Matt Heafy (Trivium) and Anup Sastry (Jeff Loomis, Intervals), as well as returning instructors Joey Sturgis and Keith Merrow.
