Studio session

For our project, we composed and recorded four tracks using a studio in Mill Hill. The tracks themselves were made up of multiple instruments including bass, trumpet, drums and piano as well as vocals and so we realised it was going to be a difficult task to record all the tracks in 7 hours. However with the help of Harlem (vocals) and Ife (trumpet) we were able to complete it in time. The challenge was made particularly difficult as the chord progressions used were quite intricate, making it hard to both add vocals to and record instrumental parts that fit well. However we were able to overcome this with teamwork as we helped each other to compose parts of the songs. From this project we were able to learn more about the recording process and use skills we have acquired as musicians in a more professional environment.
