Girls Rock Camp - Digital Audio Week: Summer Session Rock Remote

Register Now!
Cost: 0-$500, sliding scale
Ages: 10-17
Dates: July 26-31st, 9am-3:45PM
Location: Remote
Description: Collaborate with real bandmates in a virtual space! Write and record an original song! Learn how to be your own Music Producer!
When you work in a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) alone, you have the power to act as an entire band, putting all the parts of a song together and thinking like a music producer or audio engineer. When you work in a DAW with bandmates, you have the power to hear AND see how everyone’s parts work together and quickly try out new ideas, even when you can’t be in the same room together. Long-distance musical collaboration is nothing new - punk and hip hop artists used to get tapes in the mail from their collaborators, add new parts, and send them back. But thanks to internet-based DAWs, we don’t have to wait days for snail mail to put hot new tracks together - and with social DAW platforms like Soundtrap, you can collaborate in real time, almost like working in a Google doc!
