Set in a professional recording studio, Martin Tang, together with his team of music secessionists and sound engineer, will walk you through the process of technical set up, production, arrangement, recording, mixing and sound reinforcement. Condensing a long process into a one-day session demonstration, we hope to help songwriters to better understand the professional music production; from the time a good song is selected to its launch in the market. For those who are planning to do your own EP or album, or think this is something you will explore some time down the road, this session will give you a good overview helping you to plan, manage and execute your music production, and also to know what are some of the general options and alternatives you can have.
This is an intimate session limited by the space in the recording studio so grab your tickets fast as this opportunity hardly comes by!

We have gathered a panel of speakers who are established in both K-Pop and Chinese Pop, two of the largest music industries in Asia. We have Mr Martin Tang (Singapore) in the Chinese Pop, Ms Tina Wang (Taiwan) who crosses both Chinese Pop and K-Pop, Mr Kim Se Jin (Korea) who is highly established in the K-pop and Mr Jake Lee (Korea) who does film music production and much more. The aim is to give you some insights and understanding to the music industry for songwriters. Topics touched on will be specific and of interest to songwriters, like the supply and demand of songs and the industry’s criteria in the selection of songs. There will be Q&A time and come prepared with your questions!
Publishing and copyrights are the bread and butter for songwriters and thus a very important topic to cover in the last session of the series. Publishing and copyrights, although a complicated legal and administrative process, it is pertinent for songwriters to know how to protect your own creative originals and how the business behind the scene supports songwriters. Find out more about the mechanics of having music placed in commercials and dramas, or even sung by top artists, which is all part of publishing.

Hi Derence, there is a possibility if there is demand for it but it won’t be so soon. It is hard to gather all the top music people to do something like this. Here’s the highlight video of Session 1 https://youtu.be/dndYJb8L0DE. Keep a look out for other activities. Also do let us know what you think will be help you and if there is enough pool of people to create a workshop, we are happy to do it. =)
