ASCAP Showcases Track Producers in Nashville

ASCAP hosted the first Nashville “Track Producers in the Round” on Tuesday, April 14 to a standing room only crowd at The Cellar Room at The Sutler. Originally dubbed “track guys and girls in the round,” the event was the brainchild of ASCAP’s LeAnn Phelan and served to highlight Nashville’s ever-growing stable of talented track producers.

Each producer was individually highlighted during the first-of-its-kind event by guest host and DJ Jesse Frasure, aka Telemitry, before a packed house of key Nashville music industry players and songwriters.

Belmont’s Ocean Way Studios Records Award-Winning Video Game Scores

Ocean Way Nashville logoBelmont’s Ocean Way Studios is well-known as a recording studio of choice for many artists and producers, but the facility is also behind the helm of an increasing number of video game scores. In recent years, the studio has produced a number of scores for popular games that have gone on to accumulate a number of national recognitions. At the 2014 GANG (Game Audio Network Guild) Awards, “The Last of Us,” a best-selling game with score composed by Gustavo Santaoello and recorded at Ocean Way, won Best Audio. In March 2014, the studio scored “Dragon Age Inquisition” by famed composer Trevor Morris, which went on to win the 2015 D.I.C.E. Awards Game of the Year.

Director of Belmont’s Ocean Way Studios Patrick McMakin says media music is fast becoming a large part of the music business and because of that, Ocean Way has opened its doors to a diverse set of projects. McMakin says media music allows the university to diversify the education it can offer to its students. “It’s made us better, because the scores are fairly large in size, and we’re working with top level composers who work with orchestra all over the world. The knowledge they have brought in our doors has allowed us to improve every aspect of how we operate Studio A technically.”
