CM and the OAE

Students from CM's Creative Music Production & Business course worked alongside the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment to create new musical compositions.This collaborative work focused on both the technical and the creative demands of working with unfamiliar sources and styles; taking place in the unique acoustic space at Village Underground. Students used the recordings to form brand new pieces of music, fusing their own production styles with the acoustic samples.
