A travelling recording studio is offering local bands or choirs the chance to win a free day in front of the mic through a competition.
Sheringham-based musician and recording engineer Paul Thompson is running the scheme to mark the launch of his new company Travelling Studio, which specialises in recording large music groups on location.
It began after he recorded three CDs of his own music and people started asking him to do recordings for them. Travelling Studio is an all-in-one service including design and duplication.
“For music groups such as schools and choirs, trying to organise a large group of people getting to a studio can be logistically very difficult,” he said.
“It can also be quite daunting to stand in front of a microphone for the first time. Recording in an environment you know and feel comfortable with will often produce the best results because you are basically relaxed.”
To enter visit the website www.travellingstudio.co.uk to say what your favourite piece of music is, and why. The 10 best answers will be placed in a prize-draw with the lucky winner to be announced in the Spring.
