The Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) has endorsed the Ghana International Music Clinic (GIMC) scheduled to take place at the National Theatre, Accra on November 20, 2019 from 8am to 5pm.
MUSIGA indicated its happiness in endorsing the event and hoped that it would help lift the standard of live stage musical performances in the country and the sub- region.
President of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour (a.k.a Obuor), an enthusiastic stage performer with multiple awards, and skills in playing musical instruments on stage was optimistic about the objectives of the Music Clinic.
Obuor’s America and Europe tour some years ago was as a result of his conscious lyrics amplified by his animated live stage musical performance which gave his audience a good feel.
The advocate for live stage musical performances had no doubt that the expertise of facilitator for the Clinic, Carl Golembeski would help participants advance their performances.
The MUSIGA President said the organisation of the event was timely and would give participants the needed skills and techniques to advance their performances during this year’s Christmas events.
The organisers, Institute of Professional Event Management (IPEM) were confident that the clinic would offer participants in Ghana and the sub-region the opportunity to be the game changers in live stage musical performance saying, transforming studio quality to live stage performance was the best way to give the audience an exciting experience.
According to IPEM, there had been occasions that music lovers left many live music events disappointed by the performances of the artists because their live stage musical performances did not reflect the quality of their studio recording.
The organisers observed that in order to thrill music fans, live musical performers should always be at the their very best adding, musicians and sound engineers could only achieve this through acquiring the right training and urged them to show up at the event.
Carl Golembeski, the facilitator for the GIMC has for the past four years, worked as American singer, Beyoncé’s Vocal Fx Engineer developing a system to take her studio fx seamlessly into a live sound environment for real time control.
Carl is a sound artist, vocal fx engineer and music producer in various sonic territories with most of his career being in the form of live sound. He has toured the world with artists such as Bruno Mars, Carlinhos Brown, and Mary J. Blige and served organisations like Ram Dass LSR Foundation and Joseph Campbells Audio Archives.
