The SXSW® Music and Media Conference is back for its 27th year. Our reputation as the biggest and most anticipated convergence of all things music is being kept alive by our continued effort to offer compelling daytime programming and stellar nighttime showcases.
Here's a little secret I must confess... I've had a bit of a crush on Hugh Padgham since the mid-80s when I saw him win a Grammy for - I'd been thinking it was Synchronicity - but if you look at his resumé it could have been for No Jacket Required. Either way, to one girl's fevered teenage mind came the man who was producing all the best music of the era and since then Padgham's career has been varied as he's worked with everyone from Kate Bush to Brian Wilson to Van der Graaf Generator.
These days Hugh hangs out with his famous dog Stanley (who is regularly featured in his wife's design catalogs), continues to produce, and always puts his left shoe on first.
He's coming to SXSW to speak on The Evolution of the Record Producer panel which is full on don't miss, methinks.
Hosted on Next Stage by Bike Hugger and Make Magazine, this presentation features a series of discussions from a variety of designers and innovators. Give firsthand insight into your creative process and showcase your unique design for the SXSW audience!
