Recording engineer/producer and composer Norman Teale was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1980. He finished his undergraduate degree in Recording Industry (Production and Technology) at Middle Tennessee State University in 2003. Currently, he is studying at Mills College (Oakland, CA) under Chris Brown, Maggi Payne, John Bischoff, and Fred Frith. He will graduate in 2006 with his Master of Fine Arts degree in Electronic Music and Recording Media. Norman Teale’s first record on the Ambiances Magnétiques label, “Leaves and Snows,” is a trio of sorts with Antoine Berthiaume (guitar, percussion) and Quentin Sirjacq (piano, percussion). Teale’s role on the recording as engineer/mixer is pushed to the forefront through his use of unconventional signal processing.
