Do you have a story that you have been itching to tell in song?
Well, your dreams could soon be realised thanks to a new recording project from Diploma and Advanced Diploma music students at TAFE NSW Newcastle’s Tighes Hill campus.
Dubbed Life Sessions: Recording Songs Of Our Community, the project will help individuals, community groups or charities to bring their musical dream to life thanks to the students and the state-of-the-art recording facility they have at their fingertips.
“We’re all very excited about it because it’s something new,’ student Richard Seaglove told Newcastle Live.
“The idea was inspired by the ABC series The recording Studio and is we want people from the community who have a story to tell to come in, whether they’re a musician or not it doesn’t matter.
“If people have a great story or an idea they want to put into song, we want to hear about it.”
“We can organise everything, too. from helping with the writing and performing and recording pretty much everything. We just need the community’s great ideas.”
The rules for this great initiative are simple too. The song has to be completely original, the story must be genuine and there can be no personal gain for participants from the recording.
Further, the recording must involve instrumentation (ie not. backing track) and people interested must indicate if they want to perform on the track.
Life Sessions is an initiative of The Studio Project a recording project run each semester with the Diploma and Advanced Diploma Music students at TAFE NSW Newcastle.
Anyone interested in taking part in the project should register their interest by emailing email@example.com by September 1.
