John Kurlander

John joined the team at Abbey Road Studios aged 16. His first major assignment was as the assistant engineer on the Beatles album “Abbey Road” LP at the request of George Martin and Geoff Emerick. John assisted on the subsequent solo albums from John, Paul, George and Ringo. He was promoted to first engineer after less than 2 years of assisting. Early projects included Badfinger, Mary Hopkins, Mickie Most, Peter Noone, Renaissance and Fela Kuti.

Later, over a period of 20 years, John engineered many West End and Broadway musical cast albums with EMI producer and songwriter Norman Newell. He engineered almost all of the catalogue for John Yap’s ”That’s Entertainment” label, including Broadway productions of “On Your Toes”, “The Rink” and complete studio cast recordings of classics such as “West Side Story”, “The King and I”. That’s Entertainment’s recording of “My Fair Lady” won the prestigious Gramophone award for musical theatre in 1997. He also engineered Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Grammy-winning “Requiem” featuring Sarah Brightman’s hit “Pie Jesu”.

Kurlander has also worked on numerous orchestrations of modern artists including Elton John, Cliff Richard and Ozzy Osbourne as well as engineering recordings of numerous classical works from orchestras around the world.

In 1995 he moved to Los Angeles to work on film and video game scores. He engineered the score recording of the Lord of the Rings trilogy by Peter Jackson, Die Hard 4.0 and The Hurt Locker. His sound engineering credits for video games includes a number of Blizzard Entertainment titles, including Diablo III and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty as well as Assassin's Creed II and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
