Guerrilla recording brings with it many challenges: Odd mic setups and less than optimal recording environments. Add on top of that the extreme pressure of actually composing a song in front of the cameras and you have all the ingredients for a major musical breakdown! That is, unless you have a room full of talented musicians, engineers and songwriters!
And that’s the magic of this incredibly fun and informative SongCraft Series. It’s all about skill, passion and technique fusing together -like musical molecules- to generate something big… derived from a simple inspiration. And, all along the way, we learn all about songwriting, audio engineering and production. Everybody wins!
So join Ben, Al and Mike as they take their portable audio recording rig to SxSW to capture the essence of “Butter the Children”. And then follow them back to their NYC Dubway studios to add the final magic. There’s lots to be learned here. It’s a musical journey not to be missed!
