Brighton Electric stages master classes

The modules include live engineering and record production

10 June 2011

UK - Brighton Electric recording studio is launching a series of master classes under the banner 'Learn How the Professionals Really Do It'.

The studio, which is part of a complex that also offers extensive rehearsal facilities and related services for musicians is currently working with Mumford & Sons, White Lies, Sigur Ros, Noisettes, The Cure and many more.

The master classes are in fact intensive week-long modules featuring daily theory and practical sessions led by top producers, pro audio engineers, session musicians and technicians.

The schedule includes: Drums In The Studio (25-29 July), Studio Engineering (1-5 August), Live Engineering (8-12 August) and Record Production (15-19 August). Booking details are available at www.brightonelectric.co.uk.

All the modules are based around teaching the best techniques to achieve professional results through practical hands on experience so each module is limited to only 10 places.

"The courses are aimed at people who have been to college, completed a course or worked in project studios and now want to move on - to learn how it's really done," says studio manager James Stringfellow. "There are lots of short-cuts and techniques that engineers employ that you will never learn unless you see them 'hands-on'. You can read so much, hear about it via word of mouth, in a book, but there's no substitute for actually getting your hands on the gear and hearing the difference in the results achieved.

"The idea is that we are going to pass on all our top secret information on how to get the best results. I hate all the secretiveness, the smoke and mirrors attitude that pervades in the recording business.

"Our presenters/tutors will be top names in their specialities. We will be bringing in some great names. They are the best people in their respective fields and are genuinely excited at the prospect of passing on their knowledge and experience. There shouldn't be a premium on this sort of information. Unfortunately, a lot of recording schools don't have sufficient equipment or facilities to offer that hands-on experience to their students."
