    AYM Weekend (Dec) - Contemporary Song



    Bass Player and Recording Engineer Owen Morgan hosts a weekend exploring the writing, arranging and recording process of an original contemporary song.

    Drawing on his experience working with Mercury nominated artists such as 'Wild Beasts' and 'Fionn Regan' as well as rock band 'The Darkness', Owen Morgan hopes to demystify both the creative and technical process of recording a modern song through the vocabulary of both an experienced engineer and jazz musician. Students will take control of the writing and arranging of the song and be encouraged to explore the flexibility allowed by modern recording/production techniques. The aim will be to have a completed recording of an original composition by the end of the weekend.
