I am Babs, I create and produce music at my course as producer at ArtEZ Conservatory of the Arts. I study Media Music. I already released three singles! My third single was just released and I created it to have some positivity in times of corona. I want people to think like "this period is not the nicest period of time, but there is still space for optimism if you ask me". I am releasing singles with the help of the BurgerBeurs. That is a scholarship I got and I am very proud of that. With this scholarship, you get money for a year to support for your training and music plans.
If you hear a song on the radio of Lady Gaga, you mainly hear the singer. But still, you notice the music that is there. Often, it looks like the singer has created the song, but the producer has a major role in this as well. The producer puts the song together from beginning to end. Actually, that person makes sure the song is ready to be played on the radio.
My course is super diverse! I don't even know how to describe one day at the conservatory. We also have theoretical classes, such as music history, technical aspects of sound, music business and economics, but also a lot of creative classes where you get to put together songs. You can rent some gear from ArtEZ to take home, but I have my little studio at home. I actually always have the opportunity to make music, as long as I have my laptop with me.
