Be Your Own Record Label

6:30 PM – 7:45 PM

Description

Learn how to record, produce and distribute original music to a variety of audiences. Presented on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month - from 6:30 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. - by the Digital Media Lab in a Zoom meeting, this forum is dedicated to independent artists: musicians, vocalists and performers who are ready to make their voice known in the music & entertainment industry.

Be Your Own Record Label covers the basics of setting up and acoustically treating a home studio space. It addresses the technical side of studio recording: including tried-and-true production techniques to add punch and sparkle to your mixes. We discuss the many aspects of networking online and presenting your music to other artists, producers and engineers. We challenge each other to stretch our skill sets and redefine our market constantly. Emphasis is placed on low-cost, free and open-source software options, and how to procure the equipment and software you'll need to take your music to the next level.

Each participant is encouraged (but not required) to share their latest musical creation with the class, based on specific challenge activities issued by the instructor at the preceding gathering. Producers will then have opportunity to receive first-hand reaction and comments about their work.
