Music Production: A long way to go!

It’s a long process from the sheet music to the finished production! The music must be composed, rehearsed and recorded. The recording takes place in a studio, where a sound engineer and often a recording supervisor is needed. After everything is recorded, the editing process begins. The recording is then mixed and mastered, and then the CDs are pressed. Photos, texts and translations are needed for the booklet. The recording is also made available for download and streaming. Before and after the recording is released, good marketing is required! Your support helps to cover many of the production costs for this CD!
