Hugo Nicolson's 20-year music career has been extraordinary, writes Paul Watson. He's toured with Primal Scream – whose album Screamadelica he also co-produced – and his engineering and producing skills have landed him a prestigious Grammy Award.

Nicolson has also recently launched the first product from his own boutique audio brand Lisson Grove, which is dedicated to 'recapturing the finest studio sounds of yesteryear'; and he has just completed his first musical iPad App Polychord. Oh, and did I mention that he can't play a musical instrument?

Joined up thinking: collaborations in pro audio

“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean,” opined Ryunosuke Satoro. It's probable that the late Japanese poet didn't have professional audio in the forefront of his thoughts when he made that observation, but the sentiment still resonates as a number of manufacturers seek out collaborators who can help them to make waves around the world.
