For over 25 years, Russell Bond has set the industry standard for crafting audio recordings. As a recording, mixing and mastering engineer, he has raised the benchmark for which most engineers still strive toward. His meticulous work with Todd Rungren, George Winston, Michael Hedges, Alex DeGrassi and Liz Story, as well as guitarist Stevan Pasero, has placed him in the upper echelon of engineers and producers in North America.

Russell began his recording career at Soper Sound from 1973-76 and then continued at Music Annex in Menlo Park, CA from 1976-94. It was at Music Annex that he further established his career by working with various labels, producers and musicians on the West Coast. In 1994-98 he founded Digital Audio Productions in Saratoga, CA, an important beta site for DigiDesign products and was the first to record CDs using early ProTools technology. Currently he is Senior Engineer at Granada Studios.

Christopher’s first performance experience began at age 5 playing drums with his parent’s jazz trio. Over the next twenty years he accompanied several jazz greats such as Chick Corea, Stan Kenton, Cal Tjader and more. He also studied composition at several Universities (UCSC, SJS, etc.) under such luminaries as David Cope, Randy Masters and others.

The introduction of the drum machine created an intriguing dilemma of either learning everything about these new machines or becoming a bartender…he chose the former. This led to his involvement in the development of several new musical technologies with key manufacturers including EMU systems.

After owning and operating his own production and recording studios for several years, he decided to focus on product development with a new company called Digidesign. Over the last ten years, Christopher has helped lead Digidesign to become the de-facto standard in the recording industry as well as post-production audio for TV and film, winning a Grammy for Technical Achievement in 2000. Today Mr. Bock runs World Wide Sales and Marketing for Digidesign…and enjoys terrorizing his 4 year old twin daughters and drinking absinthe at Joe’s in Prague.
