Project MyNT is hosting a 2-week Electronic Music Production capsule course at Sri Aurobindo Centre for Arts and Communication, New Delhi. This course, tailored specifically for musicians who want to upskill themselves by learning about production tools and techniques, will be held from August 24th to September 8th on Saturdays and Sundays. Today, production is a necessity in the music industry and since musicians have to spend a lot of money on getting their songs recorded and produced by others, this capsule will allow them to not only save money on production but also to impart this highly needed skillset. In this way, they can work on their own terms, at their own pace and add a personal touch to their music by producing it in their own style.

The course will explore all the important aspects of music production, right from the fundamentals of sound and music theory to the path of digital audio workstation processes. Not only this, it will provide people with an introduction to mixing their music too, all in a professional studio environment with industry standard equipment at the Audio Labs of SACAC.

Faculty

Gaurav Chintamani, the director of Audio Engineering and Music Production at SACAC will mentor this program and impart the best practical knowledge of audio production. He is an industry veteran and has been producing music and playing in the band, Advaita, for almost 20 years now. He has produced music not only in the music industry but also for feature films, documentaries, short films, advertisements, and TV shows.
