EMERGENCE Creative Festival kicked off on Wednesday with the Lake Cave event deck transformed in to an outdoor recording studio.
From 11am til 5pm Wednesday musicians filed through for half hour recording sessions with audio engineers and producers from Perth’s SAE Institute.
SAE teacher Damian Masters was behind the initiative and was working with musicians to record their samples, beats and entire songs.
“What better way to show people what the school actually does? While giving local musicians a chance to record their music,” Mr Masters said.
Producer Detlev Kerkovius said everything recorded on the day would be made available online for people to access, download and use to create entire songs.
“We’re taking ideas and snippets and giving people a chance to make their own creative ideas come together,” Mr Kerkovius said.
“All the recordings, riffs and grooves and entire songs will be available for people to download and play with on Soundcloud. That’s what we’ll be doing all night, sampling and producing.”
Musician Saul Cresswell said the recording experience was a great chance to be a part of a musical collaboration.
“I’ve got my own studio at home and do my own production of mostly electronic stuff, but this is something cool to be a part of.”
Vortex Transfer songwriter and local man Peter Godden also shared a few songs from his prolific back catalogue, alongside saxophonist Rob Bruce.
“This is just a bit of fun… but recently I recorded 104 songs I’ve been writing since I was 17,” Mr Godden said.
“Just in case I suddenly fall off the planet I don’t want them to disappear.”
Emergence Creative Festival event organiser LeeCummings said they hoped to include the community more throughout the 2014 festival, and the recording project was a great start to that ambition.
