Producers’ Lounge 2014 (digital album)
Producers’ Lounge CD
The Producers’ Lounge Project launched in 2014 as an innovative new music mentoring project for young emerging producers from culturally diverse backgrounds to develop skills in production under the guidance of respected artist and producer Mohamed Komba (a.k.a Momo, Diafrix). Through a hands-on creative development process, emerging producers Bill Okwalo and Ahmad Alwan worked with talented young vocalists to create two brand new tracks for digital release.
The collaborations include emerging producers Ahmad Alwan featuring vocals by Jared Hiakita and Kaiit Waup and Bill Okwalo featuring vocals by FLYBZ. The producers worked with Momo from July 2014 in a series of workshops to create beats, discuss different arrangements and complete different exercises to develop their skills. A key facet of the program focuses on highlighting and fine-tuning skills required in the collaborative process of music-making between producers and musicians including ways to effectively translate musical concepts to reality.
The album is only available to purchase as a digital download at Multicultural Arts Victoria’s Bandcamp.
