JOHN KURLANDER

John Kurlander is a world-renowned music recording engineer and score mixer whose extensive career ranges from working with numerous classical and popular music artists to recording hundreds of feature film scores and symphonies including recording soloists and small ensembles as well as large orchestra and choir. John joined the team at Abbey Road Studios at the age of 16. His first major assignment was as the assistant engineer on The Beatles’ “ABBEY ROAD” LP. He quickly went on to become one of the world’s leading recording engineers for classical music, orchestral classic rock, musical theatre and then crossed over to film scores.

He is perhaps best known for his engineering and mixing work on “THE LORD OF THE RINGS: FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING,” “THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS” AND “THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE RETURN OF THE KING,” for which John took home 3 consecutive GRAMMYS for Best Score Soundtrack Album and 3 consecutive TEC Awards for Best Film Sound Production.

His recent notable projects include engineering the score sessions for the Academy Award nominated THE HURT LOCKER (music by Marco Beltrami and Buck Sanders) and the award-winning video game score ASSASSIN’S CREED II (music by Jesper Kyd).
