I am the chief audio engineer for The Singing Wells project. Stemming from my work with Abubilla Music in London, I got involved with the Singing Wells project.
The project aims to help preserve the traditional music of East Africa, through the location recording of
We arrive in a pre-arranged location and meet up with musicians. We set up our mobile recording studios and record and film performances in the location. The project pays the group a gratuity for their time performing, and they get a CD of the session to take away with them.
To date, I have worked on 3 recording trips to Uganda and 3 trips to Kenya.
I have also been responsible for a lot of the post production of videos from the project – editing the videos in Premiere Pro and exporting them to YouTube and tagging them. I am also responsible for looking after the library of recordings in the archive in the UK.
