Activity Description

Come learn with the professional recording engineer Jake Carlson in the Shell Lake Arts Center Recording Studio this summer! Music production camp is a week of hands-on music production and audio engineering study! Students will learn both creative and technical skills beneficial to arranging, producing and recording using industry standard computer software. Taught by industry professionals, this course covers the basics of working in a studio environment in an exciting way that enables students to create their own original art as well as capture the sounds of others. No previous experience needed! At the end of the program, students will leave with a CD and an archived copy of the recordings they made while at camp.

Students will learn:

Recording Tools and Software: Students will learn about recording software, MIDI devices (controllers used to input musical data) and audio interfaces (the process of recording audio and manipulating it within the computer.) In a nutshell, this will show students what tools are needed to create original musical content using a computer.

Location Recording: Students will learn how to capture sound in a live setting. This could be anything from recording a single instrument to recording an entire ensemble performance using multiple microphones and a computer. The recordings that students gather will then be edited and mixed using recording software. 

Students will need to bring: 1 USB flash drive or hard drive with a minimum of 64GB of storage.  All other equipment provided!
