MusicBox Studio Monthly Report
Month/Year: September 2012
Studio Location: Nashville South Studio @ Andrew Jackson Boys & Girls Club
Program Director: Jen Hodges
Dominique and DeAndre researched beats/licensing procedures before selecting and downloading a beat. They found a producer on Youtube who wants credit and gave them permission to use his beat. They also engineered the whole session, and payed special attention to make sure vocals did not clip.
Dominique learned how to make his voice sound like he’s on the TV through a distortion plug-in. He also has mastered cutting and pasting clips to lengthen and syncopate verses.
Queen teamed up with Rockstar (a producer). He is going to furnish her with beats, and guide her career. We are still working with Queen, and wish her new partnership the best!Wayford is back with a new track. As usual, it is dope!
Outreach/ Outside Collaborations:
I am working with Guitar Center to bring in some new kids from their recording class. Found a rapper on craigslist, he is 17, and is ready to record:)
Other Cool Stuff Worth Mentioning:
Lil Bre from the Young Squad came to visit. He collaborated on a track with Queen, and performed live for the club. The girls loved him! He had a lot of positive energy, and Queen said it was her favorite day in the studio, because he was just as motivated as she is.
