I will be working at Waterworks Recording Studio in Tucson, studying how music is recorded in a professional setting. Waterworks Recording Studio is a prestigious recording studio that has worked with famous bands such as Sonic Youth to record high quality albums. I’ll be spending three months rocking out and recording songs for underground bands, and better understanding the recording process and the music industry. I will have an up close look at the music scene of Tucson and help get out the music of rock and roll. The balance of sound among the musicians and the workings of the mixer will be my main focus, as I try to figure out how all of the instruments coalesce into the art of rock music on an album.
