Studio Engineer Bilecki Dies

04:31 PM Tuesday 2/7/12 | |

An unsung hero of the music industry passed away during the weekend. Known for his work in the studio as well as on live recordings, Latin Grammy winner Martin Bilecki was 52.

The list of artists Bilecki worked with is almost infinite. As a live sound mixer, monitor engineer and production provider Bilecki crossed paths with many major acts, including Alice Cooper, Montgomery Gentry, Patti LaBelle and Anthrax.

Bilecki received Latin Grammy Awards for his work with Los Horoscopos de Durango, Alacranes Musical and Grupo Montez de Durango.

The founder of Chicago-based Performance Recording and Sound in 1991, Bilecki was remembered by friends as a “big, huggable teddy bear of a guy” who was always quick with a kind word or a joke. A posting on Paul Revere & The Raiders’ website recalls Bilecki as a “one of those rare people who loved his job so much that it made you happy just to be around him.”

    I have played countless gigs with Marty when he was either at the controls of the monitor board or the main house. I have witnessed him working flawlessly with big ego's from  fellow stage crew people to super star musicians & singers, he was always the calm, together and the best (vibe) guy to have on or off the stage. Plus he was a master talented Grammy winning producer at his own studio gigs too. I will (we all will) miss him so much, he is impossible to duplicate, he will be missed. *Note to any musician or singer in any band: "PLEASE, Always treat your road crew, drivers, sound & light guys ALL with respect, they are there to try to keep you looking and sounding like a star".

    Sincerely,

    Ron Foos (bass player for Paul Revere, Randy Bachman, Righteous Bro's Bill Medley and many more.

    There should be more acknowledgements such as this in professional music. There are so many people behind the scenes who make everything possible for the performers. Being an amazing producer, tech or engineer is a awesome talent unto itself.
