Building on the fundamentals developed in MSR2152 Beginning Workshop in Recording, this class will focus on specific techniques for creating quality recordings of a wide variety of instruments. We will develop an understanding of the sonic and musical properties that make each instrument unique as well as techniques for working with live instrumentalists and vocalists in the studio. Students will be recording and mixing multi-track sessions and will be encouraged to work collaboratively with others on group assignments. We will do critical listening to a variety of types of recorded music and apply our observations to your own projects.
Corequisites: Must participate in Music Workshop (Tuesdays, 6:30 – 8pm).
