Calling All Digital Music Makers in the East Midlands
CDR is back seeking digital music makers of all styles, acoustic, electronic, fusion, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, folktronica or the downright unclassifiable
Creative gurus burntprogress are bringing CDR to the East Midlands, hitting Leicester, Nottingham and Derby with a series of music nights and creative seminars aimed at bringing a new community of digital music makers together to network and collaborate.
Leicester was the first city to play host with a free Creative Knowledge Seminar, ‘Many Hats, One Head’, taking place at De Montfort University, Leicester, on 18 March as part of FAME – The Creative Industries Show – the largest creative industry event in the East Midlands. Music makers just have to turn-up to take part.
The CDR Creative Knowledge Seminar started from 6.30pm to 8.30pm will see pioneering music producer and dubstep bastion Loefah discuss and take questions on how he maintains and develops a music production career, whilst DJing and hosting club nights around the UK. Music producer Tony Nwachukwu, of Attica Blues fame and one part of the duo behind burntprogress will be chairing the discussion.
The CDR event then continues at Leicester’s Sophbeck, from 9pm to 2am. Here, music makers and producers can hand in CDs to get their tracks played live and loud to an audience of like-minded music makers. Loefah will be playing a special set of his own works-in-progress with DJ sets from local Leicester-based producers Psykhomantus (Donuts), Pure Phase, Jimi O and Biscuit Tin Soundsystem.
CDR in the East Midlands is based on burntprogress’s hugely successful CDR night at London’s Plastic People – twice nominated ‘Best Club’ on Radio 1’s Worldwide Awards.
More events will follow in Leicester, Nottingham and Derby. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or check www.myspace.com/burntprogress.
