Do you love to study music, and want to be inspired instead of just taught?

Grammy award winning musician Chilly Gonzales is hosting an all expense paid, 8-day musical workshop in France next April, where he plans to do just that.

August is a month for planning and executing the blueprint for the Fall. We are entering the last quarter of the year and as we start to take tally of our wins and losses there is an important question to answer: "What is next for me?"

For the longest I always wanted to put the most valuable players detrimental to a record's succcess on the spot so all the music enthusiast could sit and watch them speak. Who are these individuals taking the title of mvp you say? Only the person who can bend and maneuver your vocals into a werk of art. Yes you already know how we spell this around The Patch! The engineers!

It's been a long time and we shouldn't have left you, without a strong networking event to connect to! Okay pardon my attempt to rhyme but it's an exciting time in the city of Atlanta. The team at Patchwerk Recording Studios is gearing up to bring back The IdOMUSIC Network and Showcase event next month back in the house where it all started, Apache Cafe! Really excited for all the fresh talent perhaps you never heard of or never got a chance to meet personally. Believe it or not IdOMUSIC turns 10 years old in September and what a time to set up the platform for the music community to shine.

The reason the city of Atlanta continues to thrive in the realm of music involves the extensive networking happening daily. Patchwerk Recording Studios knows a thing or two about the process. If you actually have a plan with realistic goals, you can make quite a path for yourself. This was part of the idea for creating the IdOMUSIC® Weekend which was recently completed in Flint, Michigan last month June 24th-June 26th.

Recording, Mixing, Mastering, and Monetization w/ Patchwerk Staff

 

The legendary Patchwerk staff gathered at Patchwerk Recording Studios to discuss Recording, Mixing, Mastering, and Monetizing services offered at the studio. These are all essential when it comes to making a hit record. The werkshop was separated into three different sections so that the audience was able to digest each service and understand the importance of the process for their record.

Many artists, managers, and producers gathered to get industry tips on music publishing from Kobalt Publishing’s VP of Creative Services, Al “Butter” McLean. Al Butter has been with Kobalt for over 10 years working with numerous clients such as Paul McCartney, Lauryn Hill, Katy Perry, and Noah “40” Shebib.

The recap video is up from Saturday March 5th 2016 Weekend Werkshop with Travis Nuckles discussing How To Effectively Promote and Market Your Music For Radio. The house was packed as always for our 4th consecutive sold out event.

 

Our next werkshop is Fundamentals of Publishing with Al "Butter" McLean slated for Saturday March 26, 2016! Purchase tickets here.

Our weekend werkshop topic to close the end of November featured Dj Nabs discussing The Importance of The DJ. If you missed it check out the recap. Plenty of insight was given on how to break into the industry as a dj and establish yourself.  Our next werkshop is scheduled to take place Saturday, December 12th 2015. Make sure you are taking advantage of the netwerk!
