Recording Archive

"Everything you create is a reflection of who you are AND who you will become."

Everything in this archive was created by CMAS students. Everything. For every single piece, be it live or in studio, there was a student or students composing it, students preparing/practicing the performance, students selecting and setting up all the gear, students running every single cable, in some cases even designing the room and/or stage setup, students running the recording sessions and live events sound, students mixing, hopefully students writing liner notes, and so on. It’s a lot to do at any age, let alone as teenagers. A lot of time, a lot of effort, a lot of care. Continually being added to, this archive is a reflection of the students over the years and their work and their Creative processes. This archive is a moment in time. And it’s only a small sample of what goes on in CMAS. It’s an honor to be part of it all.
