A pure obsession with sound drove a young woman from her rural Italian home to the UK and into London’s recording studios. A relentless drive to learn how everything in audio works then set her on the path to sessions with Depeche Mode, Björk, Animal Collective, Circuit des Yeux, Holly Herndon [Tape Op #132], Goldfrapp, and black midi. Recently, the MPG (Music Producers Guild) awarded her UK Music Producer of the Year, among other previous honors, and her work has been nominated for Grammy Awards. I dropped her a line at her Studio Zona, and Marta’s enthusiasm and dedication to the art of recording audio was enlightening.
Audio Media International: MPG Producer of the year Marta Salogni on Tape, Black Midi’s Hellfire, and Choice Plugins
Hailing from Italy, Marta Salogni’s relocation to London – in pursuit of the very best artists and studios in which to work – was driven by a lifelong love of sound. With widespread industry recognition for her engineering, producing and mixing, Salogni’s multifaceted endeavours have resulted in her working with some of the most compelling artists on the planet. From Bon Iver to Animal Collective, David Byrne to Björk and most recently, Black Midi – one of the UK’s most breathtaking new bands.
This year’s UK Producer Of The Year award was won by Marta Salogni, who was previously recognised by the MPG in 2018 when she won Breakthrough Engineer of The Year, and again in 2020 when she won Breakthrough Producer of The Year. Salogni has risen to prominence working with the likes of Björk, Animal Collective, Anna Meredith and Bon Iver.
Following an exciting ceremony at The Tower Hill Hotel in London, The Music Producers Guild has now announced the complete list of winners for the 2022 awards. Now in its 14th year, the annual event has become a benchmark for recognising early talent in the industry, who later go on to lead it.
'Marta is a force. She’s worked on some very special music and I think that’s no coincidence. She brings a deep understanding and passion to everything she does and the extra care and analog workflow really makes a huge difference when she does it, expecially with the tape effects and treatments in full view. Love that!'
