This module aims to introduce the participants to digital technologies (e.g. audio and video recording, editing) that they can use in the context of Mediterranean Youth Orchestra symphonic and Medinea auditions (especially when auditions cannot be held face to face), but that they can also employ at any other stage in their musical career. Another highlight of this module is the presentation of technical solutions for group rehearsals when located in different parts of the world. A third key theme of this module is studio recording, and collaborating with a sound engineer before and during recorded and/or live performances. Participants will also be introduced to electronic tools and to the ways in which these tools can be blended with acoustic instruments and composition.

More and more organisations are recruiting artists through a video application process that requires you to film and record your own artistic performance. In this webinar, Aurélie Granier offers practical tips on how to do your best technically while recording the required video application.

Medinea On Air is a European Union Erasmus+ funded programme that unites six partners from the Mediterranean region: the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence (France), the Ente Musicale di Nuoro (Italy), ARC Research and Consultancy (Malta), the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa (Portugal), the University of Ljubljana – Academy of Music (Slovenia), and the Istanbul Technical University (Turkey).

Medinea On Air aims to provide specific preparation for classical musicians and improvisers who wish to audition for the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra’s symphonic and Medinea Sessions; and more broadly, to enrich young musicians’ musical training. Therefore, in addition to Audition and Competition Preparation, the programme provides three other modules: Digital TechnologyCareer Development and Human, Social and Entrepreneurial Skills and Aesthetics, Cultures, Identities and Artistic Encounters.
