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 make of it? When is the track really complete? These are just the types of questions to be answered at CDR.
The evening will kick off with insights into the production methods, tools, and philosophy of both Morphosis – who performs the following Friday in the framework of the ≠ (not equal)
night at Berghain – and of veteran musician, producer, and mastering-engineer Stefan Betke aka Pole (performance on 4.2. at Horst Krzbrg
). 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 listening session with previously submitted tracks will round off the evening. Upload your own tracks at cdrberlin.net
if you’re interested, and you’ll get to hear them later over the Berghain Kantine’s superb sound system when CDR resident DJs Dirk Rumpff 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.
