In the days before the Roundhouse Rising festival begins, we’ve been given the opportunity to work with young music makers to help them produce and complete a track. Participants get the chance to build upon an initial idea, layer beats, sounds and textures, learn creative ways to use effects and arrange the idea.
The first day of the Roundhouse X CDR Production Focus consists of meeting the participants and learning about the direction they want to go down with their tracks.The group itself is extremely varied with participants including singer song writers, beat makers and Square Pusher enthusiasts just to name a few.
From looping acoustic guitars to embellishing the top lines on complex compositions, the creativity has indeed been varied.
Bring on day two!
