Legendary recording engineer Steve Albini is to co-host a sound engineering workshop in Scotland next February.

Dundee indie act Spare Snare are to work with the Nirvana and Pixies producer recording guy at the Chem19 Studio in Blantyre with places available on the workshop for 10 Scottish engineers.

Albini has worked with a variety of Scottish bands in the past – including Womps, Silverfish, Senator and Mogwai – but usually at his Electrical Audio base in Chicago.

Aside from working with the Shellac frontman (whose band are on tour in Scotland this week), the chosen few will also be situated at the studio set up by The Delgados and now home to acclaimed producer Paul Savage.

The Workshop application is open to all Scottish Engineers and Producers aged 18 and over who are resident in Scotland, with no maximum age.

The course will be free, as it is supported by The National Lottery through Creative Scotland.

The ten lucky attendees will be chosen by a panel including a Creative Scotland representative, one Chem19 Studio employee, and a member of Spare Snare.

Deadline for the applications is 30th November 2017.
