Acappella project

 

Singing has always been a passion of mine and I have always wanted to incorporate that into my future career. I relish in the time I spend with music, and will often be found either listening to it, or performing it.

 

So, to have the chance to use a genuine audio recording system alongside a professional, expensive vocal microphone to record this cover was such an amazing experience, and it set in stone that music is the career path in which I want to travel. To also have the opportunity to work in an office, and to have a taster of adult working life was truly beneficial and I am extremely grateful to been able to do this.

To begin this process, I first brainstormed songs in which I felt confident in performing. (This however changed frequently in the space of three days, in order to feel confident in the end product). Before we could record the full audio, we, collectively, went on a field trip to take some pictures in which benefited the other groups, for example, the photography, and art groups. I also took some pictures in which could be used as an ‘album or song’ art cover.

We then returned to the office, and I then recorded some practice audio. This was one of the most memorable parts of the week for me, I adored using the professional equipment, and it almost felt like the beginning of my music career.

The next morning, I recorded fully the final cut of audio, and from then I decided on whether or not to leave it acapella, or to introduce in some instrumental/backing tracks.

This has been an incredible experience and I am very grateful to have been a part of it.
