The Weekend Werkshop series provides a monthly dose of knowledge and real world experiences told by current contributors to what we call the culture. Our most recent weekend workshop series brought the expertise of Grammy Award Winning Songwriter/Producer/Dj/ and Head Of Music for I Am Other, Kawan Prather. Patchwerk Recording Studio was alive and sold out for the morning seminar.
Our first ever Masterclass was taught by one of the South’s most prominent producers, the legendary Drumma Boy . This event was a 2 -day werkshop geared towards up-and-coming producers, where they would receive one-on-one advice and tips from the Grammy-nominated producer, as well as netwerk with other producers from all over the country.
I often get asked questions about the Patchwerkstudio engineers being able to offer teaching lessons to the ones interested in learning. What I don't see however is the same people attending these powerful werkshops conducted by the marketing team at studio. Recently a werkshop was held where the entire audio engineering staff came out to talk to the people. Those in attendance received a boatload of info and got the chance to talk to the owners as well. People travelled across the country to obtain the info.
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!
Our monthly workshops are geared for the artist and musicians to learn from an industry professional and this month is no different! After the music is created how do you generate a buzz about your project? Who is telling your story and who actually cares enough to give attention. The next weekend werkshop will cover the Role Of A Publicist with Tia Culver.
Patchwerk Recording Studios is known for supplying artists with that sonically superior sound that will set them apart from the competition. During a session in Studio 1019 you are supplied with a certified tracking engineer that will assist in bringing your record to life.
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.
Knowing how to properly promote and market your music to media is essential in the music business. We sat down with journalist, radio personality, and senior editor at HipHopWired Maurice Garland on ways to effectively market your music to media outlets. Garland got his start as a journalist while attending school at Fort Valley State University where he ran the college radio station and contributed writing to the school newspaper. His hard work and networking led him to be introduced to the founder of Rolling Out Magazine, Munson Steed where his career began to flourish.
Rico Brooks, manager for super producers Sonny Digital and Metro Boomin stopped by Patchwerk Recording Studios to drop some knowledge on being a manager in the music industry. He spent years working his way up the rankings from being a clerk at a Greenbriar Mall Record store and working at Block Entertainment to being the CEO of Adella Thomas Management.
In order to mold your music into three dimensions, the proper use of reverb must be utilized. Reverberation is natural in everyday settings. It is the reflection of sound off objects. Everything you’ve ever heard is reverb. The thing people do wrongly with their music is either misuse reverb or not use it at all. Human brains have evolved to use the information in reverb to experience sound. Everything has some reverberation on it before it meets our ears. Long reverberation suggests a large room, and short reverberation suggests a small room.
