Study Block 1 – 20 Credits
Studiocraft introduces students to the art and craft of sound recording and focusses on both the technical and personal skills necessary for achieving high-quality recordings. These two themes are explored in parallel with students learning the psychology and diplomacy of getting the best performances from musicians, while also gaining a comprehensive introduction to the techniques of studio recording.
The module follows the journey of sound from source to recording media, and covers themes including acoustics, instrument optimisation, microphone technique and analogue and digital signal flow, as well as a variety of recording technologies. Students will be introduced to industry-standard production techniques and workflows, which will be continuously measured against detailed critical listening.
