Rockville, Maryland (April 1, 2014) – Omega Recording Studios, one of the most respected audio production schools and recording studios in the state, has signed industry veteran Bill Mueller as a full-time audio engineer and instructor. Mueller started his career in music in the 1970s as a road crew member for audio equipment manufacturer Heil Sound, and began teaching audio engineering in 1974, mentoring some of the best engineers in Washington and Baltimore.
He eventually earned four Grammy nominations for audio production and engineering for his work with notable artists like Michael Hedges, The Seldom Scene Company, and Douglas Miller. He has collaborated with over 150 acts in his career, including platinum-selling bands such as Aerosmith, Genesis, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Coldplay. His services have also been engaged by other Grammy luminaries like Tracy Chapman (Best New Artist, 1989), Sheryl Crow (Best New Artist, 1995), and Aretha Franklin (18 career trophies to date).
Aside from working in mainstream music, Mueller also lends his expertise to a variety of clients. His company, Vision Audio, developed a systems engineering and integration software called SimCx for NASA, which was used to integrate the Constellation Moon and Mars, Ares I, Ares V and Orion vehicle systems. He has also served as a Master Control engineer for National Public Radio.
The audio engineer has launched many philanthropic projects as well for the benefit of children on the autism spectrum. In 1994, he created the first disc-based system to help them deal with sensory integration. In 2007, he developed the first directly therapeutic video games for autistic children, and, with his company Vision Audio, released another game, the EASE Funhouse Treasure Hunt, in 2009.
Mueller will be teaching classes at Omega’s professional-quality recording studios. To learn more about Omega Recording Studios and their curriculum, visit www.OmegaStudios.com.
