Gilbert, Ariz., March 18, 2022 – Growing up, Adrian Gonzalez was fascinated with vintage electronics and music, from radios, tubes, and mechanical designs to ragtime piano, jazz, Sinatra, and Led Zeppelin.
“I always loved folk and dived deep into Jim Morrison and Bob Dylan, and growing up in Rosemead, Calif listening to classics like these made me want to record music like that again,” explained Gonzalez, now 25 years old. “That desire drove me to getting an education in the field that would give me a head start into my passion, and that’s how I found out about the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences (CRAS).”
At one point, Gonzalez was fortunate enough to have a family member that worked for the Phoenix Suns, and Gonzalez was able to gain access to the inside of the trucks that broadcast those NBA games.
“During that time I was able to meet Bob Pachman, an absolute A1 guru that showed me every detail about his work, which heavily inspired me for the first time in a long time,” Gonzalez said. “He told me about CRAS and so I pondered the decision for a while. I then decided to fully commit to this school.”
When entering CRAS, Gonzalez’s goal upon completing his classes was to move back home and intern for Capitol Records. “I wanted to record with Sinatra’s microphone and see the piano that Paul Mccartney played on,” he explained. “I wanted to feel the historic reverb chambers and experience what the legends that inspired me for so long did there.”
Gonzalez added that he has learned a lot post-graduation from working on the job and from the experience and guidance of the people above him, but the right education was the foundation he needed to get started.
“CRAS was definitely a step in the right direction for me,” Gonzalez concluded. “My CRAS education helped me in times when I had to troubleshoot certain specifics. I am thankful for my education and it is still nice to know that I can still rely on it to this day.”
