If you’ve spent any time at all in the Australian Alpine Resorts over the last decade it’s likely that you’ve stumbled across the ‘Back To The Top’ tour at one point. Now in its thirteenth year ‘Back To The Top’ has firmly established itself as the major calendar event in alpine entertainment, touching an incredibly diverse audience in rural, metro, urban and alpine regions of Victoria and New South Wales.

Since its inception 13 years ago, Back To The Top has featured ground breaking artists including The Jezabels, Downsyde, Scribe, Bliss n Eso, Midnight Juggernauts, Rogue Traders, Calling All Cars, The Galvatrons and Airborne, just to name a few. This year the ‘Back To The Top’ line up is no exception, introducing one of Australia’s finest emerging acts Polar Nation.

Underground Loop is a groundbreaking mentorship program which has facilitated collaborations between leading Australian hip hop artists and young teenagers at risk and within Victoria’s Juvenile Justice System.

The Underground Loop 2008 CD features 22 compelling and boundary-pushing original tracks straight out of hip hop’s real underground.

The Underground Loop CD is the result of collaborations between 22 teenagers aged 15-21 and mentors such as Tom-Tom and Rhyno (True Live), Paso Bionic (Curse Ov Dialect), Mantra (Equills, The Herd) DJ Wasabi (Illzilla, Combat Wombat) and other established DJs, MCs, musicians and producers on the Australian music scene.

Complete with bonus video features, the CD is available through Sound Vault Distribution www.soundvault.com.au and
www.livingmusic.com.au

This mentor ship is run by Living Music at their studios in North Melbourne

Living Music recognizes music as a powerful medium for positively engaging young people to act in their own interests, with their own beliefs and to their own capabilities.

Through Living Music’s programs youth participants can re-connect, fostering relationships with community based welfare organisations, professional musicians and music industry.

With young people working alongside high profile music industry professionals, Living Music provides a range of opportunities that will assist young people to forge careers in the music industry as well as build self-esteem and social connection.

Two Tap Tv

In 2008 and 2009, Two Tap TV produced a series of music Videos for each of the graduates of these mentorships. Time and resources were short and each of these videos were shot in under 2hrs and edited in less than 5 or 6. It was a hectic schedule and i am immensely pleased and proud of the results. It was very rewarding working with these kids and helping them create a end product that they would be proud of.

Broken Body Clock filming for the Tech Production Network

20 Feb

I have started producing a series of tutorial videos for the web site of the Tech Production Network

The College of Sound & Music Production (ACAS Member College – RTO#50392), is now offering comprehensive training resources for the delivery and assessment of Music and Entertainment Qualifications for VET in Schools.

The College of Sound and Music Production is able to provide auspice arrangements for schools, allowing delivery of accredited training that culminates in students receiving a nationally recognised Certificate or Statement Of Attainment.

The concept of our unique service is designed to bring teachers of VET Music and/or Technical production together and provide training resources as well as a forum for guidance on design, delivery and assessment.

We call it the Tech Production Network (TPN)

The videos that I am producing so far consist of tutorials on:

How to mic up a drum kit in a recording studio
How to set up and tune a PA
How to roll up mic leads
Interviews with industry figures including band manager Darren Danielson, studio engineer Greg O’Shea

The first video is I completed is a re-edit of a instant CD live recording that Salt Studios produced for Clutch, Strange Cousins, Live at the Prince of Wales in 2009. Using a mobile recording studio set up in the back of a Hiace parked in the car park, the crew from Salt mixed and produced a live CD of the Clutch gig that was then available for sale minutes after the band left the stage.

For now all the videos except this one are only available to the students of TPN, if in future any are made available to the public I will post them up here for everyone to see.
