NASHVILLE: The AES Nashville Section is pleased to announce that three-time GRAMMY-winning artist/songwriter/producer Keb Mo will be officially opening the 2012 Nashville Recording Workshop +Expo event, on Friday, March 2, with a keynote address and interactive Q&A discussion with attendees. Additionally, Mo and his go-to engineer for both studio and live performance, John Schirmer, will be walking through the production of a complete song from start to finish in the final session of the first day of NRW+E 2012, giving their unique perspectives on both the technical and emotional experiences of making a recording and conveying the truest possible message on to the listener. Having worked together on variety of musical projects, including production for artists on Keb Mo’s Yolabelle International label and musical scores for a multitude of television shows at his Stu Stu Studio in Nashville, this will afford a unique opportunity to gain insight to such a multi-faceted career and the creative process.
The Nashville Recording Workshop +Expo offers a compelling two-day recording workshop and gear exposition focused on getting the most from your personal studio recording environment. AES Nashville, in conjunction with Audio Engineering Society, Inc. in New York is presenting this industry event on March 2 & 3, 2012 at the Rocketown event center at 601 4th Ave. South, near Nashville’s famed Music Row. Designed for recording musicians, songwriters laying down demos, and professional engineers working in a personal production space, the Nashville Recording Workshop +Expo will provide essential insight and information geared to boost your career and elevate creativity.
NRW+E presenters will include leading producers, engineers, acousticians, songwriters, and musicians sharing their professional techniques and knowledge in the areas of vocal and instrument miking, songwriters production of demos, arrangements and recording for better mixes, adding rhythm and spice with virtual tracks, collaboration across time and space, work environments that enhance creativity, practical acoustic and room treatment, and technical essentials.
Cosette Collier, Chairman of the Nashville Section of AES states, “We are thrilled to be able to offer the Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo once again this year. For two days, NRW+E brings musicians, songwriters, small studio owners, audio production students and home recording enthusiasts together with professional recording engineers and music industry professionals, not for the typical ‘How I Do It’ kind of sessions, but instead, ‘How YOU Can Do It.’ Inspiration is part of the experience, but “take away” information is key.”
Nashville Recording Workshop +Expo featured events and demos will appear in a live, on-stage setting on a regular schedule throughout both days, while exhibitor booths and displays complete AES Nashville’s own convention-type setting, featuring manufacturers representing all aspects of professional audio gear and services.
