Just Press Play Camp 2016

Last week we concluded our 2016 Summer Camp Season with Just Press Play, our recording studio camp. Over the course of 5 action packed days our campers worked in teams of Producers, Engineers and Musicians to craft original songs from conception to mixed and mastered recordings. Some tracks were put together via experimentation with sampling records or video game sound effects, while others came out of a more traditional rock band jam.
