Responsible for recordings by a wide range of artists including Manic Street Preachers, Melanie C, Catatonia and Bullet for My Valentine amongst many others. Haver comments, “It is a great pleasure to be working with the students at this year’s Gus Dudgeon Foundation and JAMES Summer Course. Gus was a massive influence to many of us working in the industry. I hope to be able to pass on my experiences of the recording process to a new generation of producers and engineers.”
Phil Harding (2011 & 2012)
Responsible for major hits with Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley, East 17 and Boyzone, Harding comments, “It was a great honour for me last July to lead this course in its inaugural year and to be able to take the course into its second year is brilliant! I learned my trade as an assistant engineer, or tape-jockey as Gus used to call us, during the mid 1970s at the Marquee Studios, London where Gus Dudgeon was a regular user of the MCI J500-series desk. Gus’ version of that desk now proudly takes centre stage in the Gus Dudgeon control room at the Atrium, University of South Wales.”
