Alberts and FBi Radio’s Music Open Day
Posted on 5 Jul 2011
Last weekend saw bands, media and producers come together at our studio's for a Production Workshop. Promoted heavily across Sydney's community radio station FBi Radio, bands were invited to visit our Neutral Bay home for a tour of our various live and writing studios and the opportunity to hear Reyne House (studio manager), Wayne Connolly (producer), Michael Szumowski (Head of Creative Services/writer/producer) and Dean Belcastro (writer/producer) chat about all things production and the studio process.
An open forum proved that bands, even though are setting up home studios with the use of Garage Band and Pro-tools, are still interested in hearing titbits from experts in their field. The thirty minute Q&A was capped off with a stellar studio performance from Sydney folk rock band Winter People. Led by songwriter and vocalist, Dylan Baskind, we were privileged to hear some spanking new material which will be on their forthcoming debut album.
Canberra band Fun Machine, who dropped into the Alberts/FBi Music Day, couldn't resist the handcrafted Stuart & Sons piano in our studio and band member Bec gave us an unrehearsed sample of the pretty tunes she can perform.
