This Month’s Engineer: Andrew Dudman
For this month’s Ask Abbey Road, we welcome Senior Recording Engineer Andrew Dudman – one of the UK’s top film scoring engineers.
With a career that’s spanned 21 years at the studios, Andrew is just as comfortable recording as he is mixing. The veteran engineer has gained some fantastic credits across film, TV and video games, as well as pop and classical releases recorded both in the studios and on location.
Andrew rose up the ranks within the engineering team at Abbey Road after completing the highly-regarded Tonmeister music degree at the University of Surrey.
During his time at Abbey Road Studios, he’s earned awards for sound mixing on Disney’s Brave and sound editing on The Fellowship Of The Ring and recorded orchestral elements for the Oscar-winning Gravity score.
Andrew has also recorded such film scoring projects as Hacksaw Ridge, Baby Driver, and Mary Poppins Returns, as well as game soundtracks including Killzone 3 and Uncharted 3.
You’ll also hear Andrews work on the TV, radio and the internet as he’s recorded and mixed hundreds of production library music tracks, pop projects with the likes of Professor Green, Underworld and Elbow, as well as scores of classical recordings.
