This week in Technology in Music Education, we learned how best to record and video a performance, something that would be helpful for HSC projects and for documenting progress of students.
First we recorded our song, “Hey Dude” into Garageband using condensor mics as a whole group. This audio recording went alongside three video recordings in different angles to edit together later. After we had one basic recording to use as a guide, we recorded the parts seperately with a person conducting along to a click track to make sure it stayed in time with the original recording. Once all the parts were recorded they could be edited within Garageband to they would mix well and have a better acoustic.
Though our final music-video was never actually finished, the process of creating it was invaluable for use in the classroom.
