Music Internship: Writing an Album by David Newton

  1. 1. Music Internship: Writing an Album Summary My internship this summer involved writing and recording a CD with Dr Nathan Link and fellow student Jimmy Hawkins. We composed, recorded, and mastered a total of 9 tracks to go on our final album. I wrote the first five tracks, which are in a contemporary style, and Jimmy wrote the following 4 instrumental, minimalist pieces. Although our work was largely individual, we collaborated for ideas about songwriting and mixing. We spent most of the summer at Centre’s campus during our internship. David Newton Centre College Software and Equipment The recording software used on this project was Sonar X1 for the live recording, and Cubase for some of the instrumental tracks. For the live recording we used a Nord keyboard, Korg synthesizer, Epiphone acoustic guitar, Fender Stratocaster, and Tama drum set in addition to microphones, cables, and other hardware. Special Thanks I would sincerely like to thank Centre College and the Brown Foundation for supporting me for the internship and for making it possible. I would also like to especially thank my advisor, Professor Link, for allowing me to work with him this summer.
