special live perfomance
Every music producer knows the score: one can tinker away at a track for all eternity but it lacks something vital, and one still doesn't quite know what. Is the sound right? Does the arrangement work? How will the tune work on the dance floor? What will my buddies think of it? When is the track really complete? These are the questions to be answered at CDR.
The evening will kick off with insights into the production methods, recording techniques and mixdown wisdom of JAZZANOVAs Axel Reinemer and Stephan Leisering who have been in the music business over 20 years. Both will talk about the tricks and pitfalls in live recording as well as the differences in producing floor friendly clubtunes to a 10 piece band. Andreas "LUPO" Lubich is one of the magicians who transfers sound-waves into the vinyl. The Berlin-based cutting and mastering engineer co-execs the legendary Dubplates & Mastering studio since famous record store Hard Wax â€“ founder Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald of Basic Channel sold the studio to its engineers in the late 90ies. Loop_Oâ€™s cuts set loads of parties and soundclashes on fire in the last decade. So meet the man who provides us with good sounding records, take a deep look down in the grooves and into how to produce a vinyl record!
The aim of the event is not simply to give a straight lecture but to swap experiences, workshop style, in open discussion with all participants. A subsequent clubnight with previously submitted tracks will continue after the workshops. Upload your own tracks at www.cdrberlin.net and you'll get to hear them later over the Prince Charles sound system when CDR residents DJs Dirk Rumpff, John B. Savary and Tony Nwachukwu pull them together in a plausible DJ set. The respective artists' names will be displayed, if so wished, so as to facilitate immediate feedback.
