Female Frequency Collective Feature All-Women Production Team on Forthcoming EP!

Share This:

According to its website, “Female Frequency is a collective dedicated to empowering women & girls through the creation of music that is entirely female generated.” The organization’s website features images of many women in music production and engineering to emphasize the importance of having women present at every stage of the technical process.

In addition to promoting women who are doing great things in the world of music production, this group is actively creating and curating original music written, produced, engineered and mastered exclusively by women. Gender Amplified totally supports the efforts of this group, and thus, is proud to announce support for its upcoming EP Female Frequency: Volume 1!

Female Frequency

Female Frequency: Volume 1 was created entirely by women, start to finish. All writing, instrumentation, arrangement, performance, production, engineering, mixing, mastering, marketing and visual media was performed by women musicians and engineers from Boston, New York and LA. The project can be pre-ordered here. Support and share!

Interview: A Behind-the-Scenes Glimpse Into Music Making With Mastering Engineer Ted Jensen

 

 

The best way to learn music production and engineering is to apprentice at the feet of the folks who are at the top of the record making business. However, sometimes it’s hard to gain access to those individuals and their wonderful insights. Over on the Atlantic Records website, I started a series to help aspiring producers and engineers learn from the best! These interviews with award-winning “masters of the mix” are full of insightful technical tips, career advice and much much more. In this new era where many of us are “mentored by Wikipedia,” I hope this series helps to demystify the production process and answers many of the questions we all have concerning professional growth and development.

This interview features chief mastering engineer Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound audio mastering studio in New York City. From anecdotes about working with Mick Jagger to his involvement with creating new standards for music on iTunes, our conversation was full of awesome and insightful information.
