About The SongCraft Tutorial
You never know what's going to happen when you book a top indie band like Turin Brakes to compose and produce a song '"in-front of the cameras'" in a single day! It's a daunting challenge. However, like all the other courses in our entertaining "SongCraft Presents" Series, Ben Arthur and the band, along with the whole Dubway team, really came up with the musical goods!
So yet again we filled our guerrilla, SxSW recording studio with all kinds of high-end mics, audio interfaces, instruments and cool software to get ready to rock. The band arrives... Cameras roll... Introductions are made and everybody gets down to the songwriting business at hand!
This 'docutorial' is both an exploration of gun-to-the-head creativity and an audio recording marathon all wrapped into one. You get to witness a song idea being born and nurtured from its initial spark of inspiration to a completely realized song. Then, all along the way, you go to school on pro recording and production techniques as Mike Crehore and Al Houghton do their engineering and production magic both in Austin and back at the 'real' studio for overdubs and mixing in New York City.
So sit back and see Turin Brakes and songwriter/host Ben Arthur as they face the ultimate, musical challenge of writing and producing a one-day song... right before your eyes!
