This is a hands-on recording course that guides students in making the best possible band production of one of their own songs under less than ideal conditions. Topics covered will include technical aspects (such as finding and adapting a suitable location for the recording, sound isolation,and monitoring and microphone types and placement) but also communicating musical ideas and emotional concepts to other musicians. In addition to learning simple but effective mixing and sound processing techniques available to them in their laptop computers, there will be special emphases on vocals, their comping, doubling, stacking and thickening, their harmonies, and backing. Evening and/or weekend practice and project times will be required.
