Boston (September 22, 2005)–Country music artist Kathy Mattea, Grammy-winning producer/engineer and 5.1 Surround Sound pioneer Elliot Scheiner, Grammy-winning producer/sound designer George Massenburg, and a soon-to-be-named Berklee student songwriter will collaborate to produce an exclusive new song September 26, 29-30 at Berklee College of Music. Coincidental, overlapping visits/residencies from Mattea, Scheiner, and Massenburg have created this one-of-a-kind educational experience.
On Monday, September 26, Kathy Mattea, who is Berklee’s Songwriting department artist-in-residence from September 26 – 30, will host a pitch session from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m., and choose a student song to record on Friday of that week. On Thursday, September 29, Mattea will hold an open rehearsal for the Friday recording session from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. Then on Friday, September 30, Mattea will spend all day recording the student composition at Berklee. Music Production & Engineering department visiting artist Elliot Scheiner and Herb Alpert Visiting Professor George Massenburg will work as a team to produce and record the track, while demonstrating their methods and procedures for students.
Mattea’s new album, Right Out of Nowhere, will be released on September 27.
