Video: U2’s Producer Steve Lillywhite reveals his true obsession

In the below mini documentary, Steve walks through the early days of producing music in the ’80s with U2, well before the benefits of today’s digital technology.

With a wealth of experience at the pinnacle of music production, Steve has plenty of anecdotes and insight to share. For him, sound ‘is not just in a recording studio. Sound is everywhere.’ It’s his passion, his profession and his life.

Competition Announcement:

Philips announces the launch of a new, global competition: ‘Obsessed with Sound’ .

“The competition will be judged by the Metropole Orchestra  and Grammy Award winning music producer Steve Lillywhite“, a company spokesman says. “We’re on a search to find unheard talent with great sound from across the world, with the aim of helping up and coming artists achieve professional sound quality that can often be impossible for them to produce themselves.”

“The winner will be flown to Amsterdam to have their track re-worked, played and performed by the Metropole Orchestra – and produced by Steve Lillywhite
