Pictured here is one of five out houses, storing all the data for each individual studio, note in the corner there are power generators that last for over an hour incase of a power cut and everything can be saved.
Smallest desk in Deluxe142, it was here i was editing out swear words for a new american drama staring Matt LeBlanc
Finally done writing down all found sound needed. Now to look for some up and coming bands to feature in the end credits. Anyone interested??
More short hand of what found sound i need to record. This is still only 5 minutes of a 20 minute short film! And only includes the house party. Still need to start writing the script for the later scenes which are in day light hours and are completely different.
Minute to minute run through of found sound needed for “Human Beings” by Attic sound. I have written down everything in order, including change of scene and times. More pictures to come!
How have advancements in technology blurred the line between composer and producer?
The modern day conception of a music producer is an individual working within the music industry (ie. “Production”) of an artists music. However with the never-ending technical advancements in music production becoming so affordable/accessible how can a music producer differentiate himself from the rest? With this is mind has the producer then evolved over the years or merely adapted as developments in the industry progress.
According to Music Producers Forum (2011), “consumer-grade recording technology has become more powerful and more affordable. Amateur musicians can produce sounds on par with what a high-priced studio would just a few years ago –all from the comfort of their bedrooms”. However is this a good or bad thing? Surely if this is true, it is putting long lasting music producer with years of experience and contacts who are right for the music project out of a job. Not only that but a study shown by Luke Ebbin (a record producer) has found “95% of all music downloaded in 2010 were unlicensed and illegal” statistics that hardly provide any incentive for any record producer with such knowledge of his industry to give any time or effort into a unproven act with little, or no potential of an end payment.
So with these facts, producers today are being caught between a troubled recording industry and a rapidly developing technology. Are professional recording studios in danger of becoming obsolete? Again Music Producers Forum (2011) says “They’re cannot be one of the 4,000 Pro-tools studios in a six mile radius; no one cares”. Then maybe more studios should go back to analog recordings then and in turn pave the way for a new brand of producer. One who is merely “bedroom” based, cutting out all other revenues once used to keep record companies alive and kicking and signing new, exciting artists. With this in mind, the composer has not changed at all since lets say the late 1960s rather the producer. But in fact society today has blurred the line on what a producer’s role should become.
In this essay I will discuss how over the years the role of producer/composer has changed its course of path too completely different roles and how technology and society its self has had a major impact on that.
Here is the short film that i will be having a go at (Uni Work only) This is the finished version. Obviously when i can get the files it will be completely different. Also I will have to find my own bands to add the music into, so if anyone would like to send me there music i will be more than happy to have a go at editing parts and putting them in.
