Music

You should spend 3 hours

You are continuing your work on Unit 201ta

This final week you will need either write a 200 word paragraph on the production techniques of your chosen song or make sure that everything you have done during lockdown is finished ready for submission.

1.       Production is what happens during recording all the way to release. The best example of it is Eminem’s songs, especially on the Slim Shady LP and Marshall Mather’s LP where Dr Dre ‘produced’ the majority of songs. What this meant was Dr Dre chose drums, audio samples, bass, instruments, sound effects etc., even to the point where he would add treble or remove bass to Eminem’s vocals. The result of all of those things would be Dr. Dre’s production techniques. He might even make Eminem record the same thing several times to create a thicker sound, or he might have one vocal track in the left ear and one in the right ear.

2.       What you hear when you listen on Music on your headphones is production techniques. If there are two guitarists and you can hear one on the left and one on the right that is a production technique (called panning). Any weird sound effects you can hear are usually production techniques called reverb, phase, delay (which is why you get an echo), flange, the list goes on.

3.       Using your chosen song, research the Production Techniques and write up your information into a paragraph. If you get stuck, a song which 100% has this information on the Internet for Production Techniques is Blitzkrieg Bop by The Ramones.

Music

You should spend 3 hours

You are continuing your work on Unit 201ta

This final week you will need either write a 200 word paragraph on the production techniques of your chosen song or make sure that everything you have done during lockdown is finished ready for submission.

  1. Production is what happens during recording all the way to release. The best example of it is Eminem’s songs, especially on the Slim Shady LP and Marshall Mathers LP where Dr Dre ‘produced’ the majority of songs. What this meant was Dr Dre chose drums, audio samples, bass, instruments, sound effects etc., even to the point where he would add treble or remove bass to Eminem’s vocals. The result of all of those things would be Dr. Dre’s production techniques. He might even make Eminem record the same thing several times to create a thicker sound, or he might have one vocal track in the left ear and one in the right ear.
  2. What you hear when you listen on Music on your headphones is production techniques. If there are two guitarists and you can hear one on the left and one on the right that is a production technique (called panning). Any weird sound effects you can hear are usually production techniques called reverb, phase, delay (which is why you get an echo), flange, the list goes on.
  3. Using your chosen song, research the Production Techniques and write up your information into a paragraph. If you get stuck, a song which 100% has this information on the Internet for Production Techniques is Blitzkrieg Bop by The Ramones.

You will need to send your Production paragraph Mr. Larsen by Friday 10th July.
