In the four-day Music Production Workshop (August 5 to 8, 2019) with the band Sahad the Nataal Patchwork, Thomas Görne and Made Indrayana from the Hamburg University of Applied Media (HAW) give insights about producing a record. The event is organised by the International Film, Television and Music Academy (IFFMA) in cooperation with HAW and MediaSoundHamburg. The following public concert with the well-known band from Senegal on 9th August 2019 at 9 p.m. in the Resonanzraum will conclude the workshop and start the 9th International Hamburg Summer Academy for Film Music, Gamemusic and Sound Design.
The practical workshop “From microphone to finished mix” is aimed at musicians, composers, producers and sound engineers who would like to gain more experience in the field of recording and mixing. Among other things, it is about room acoustics, the interaction of instrument, room and microphone as well as the placement of the microphones and the mixing console including outboard effects in the recording process to support the musical goals of the band or producer. On-site work will be done with the band Sahad the Nataal Patchwork. Frontman Sahad Sarr and his musicians build a bridge between different cultures and mix many musical styles: from Senegalese Mbalax to Malian desert blues, Afrobeat, Cuban music to rock and jazz.
