L’Autre Canal Nancy hosts the launching module of the renewed Multipistes artist support programme for year 2018. It now comes with a series of workshops held by specialized professionals as well as counselling musicians and technicians that aim at developing the bands’ and artists’ know-how and working methods in different situations:
rehearsals & live music,
creativity & recorded music,
business & networking,
with a total of 15 days of training and work per year.
During the second year, the bands & artists will be encouraged to tackle the live business, during concerts on the partner stages of the Greater Region, in order to reach out to new audiences beyond their home territory.
Coined Multipistes Intensive Course, this first session is built around a set of recurrent workshops, dealing with musical practice, body & voice as well as stage performance. During 48 hours, the bands and artists are fully immersed in their common passion: music. Under the scrutiny of a pool of experienced counselling musicians, they work on how to improve their practices: how to better express and better convey the outstanding emotions that music – specifically their music – can trigger.
The next stage will then take the bands and artists to Rheinland-Pfalz where the participants will partake in a songwriting, production and sound design session with a specialized producer and leave with a demo tape. Then, they will be heading for a 2-day-recording session intended at doing final takes and the mix of a single track due to release. To do so, we jointly edit a careful selection of producers and recording facilities – each of them renowned in a genre from the wide spectrum of popular music, from which the bands are invited to choose from, depending on their artistic endeavour and sensitivity.
Stay tuned with our facebook page which, while tracking the bands, will feature plenty of busy spots where the future soundtrack of the Greater Region is actually being produced.
