Clique by Patricia Barber nominated for Best Immersive Audio Album

Many know Ulrike Schwarz not only as a long-time and active VDT member, but also as a lecturer at the Tonmeistertagung or our online format VDT-Live. Together with her husband Jim Anderson (Anderson Audio New York) she produced the current album Clique by Patricia Barber as a native 5.1 mix which was mastered by Bob Ludwig.
