Regional songwriters to attend first OECS work camp in Dominica
Published on May 9, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ROSEAU, Dominica -- The OECS Export Development Unit will conduct a three-day regional songwriters work camp for some of the top song writers and music producers from across Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) member states.

The regional songwriters work camp will be staged from May 9 - 11, 2014.

The songwriters camp will involve participation of between 15 and 18 of the best songwriters and music producers from across OECS member states, in an attempt to enhance their writing skills, build teamwork and encourage greater collaboration and synergies among writers, producers and performers of various musical genres in the OECS. The camp will most importantly result in the production of a compilation of songs to be distributed and marketed to regional and global music audiences and consumers.

A group of leading music producers and mentors from across the region will facilitate the three-day event. Well connected to the regional and global music industry, they will provide training in writing techniques, guide writers on the nuances and particular styles and idioms best suited for regional and global markets, and stimulate a process of co-production and collaboration leading to the creation of a compilation of songs.

The camp will begin with a formal opening ceremony on Friday and will end with a showcasing of works completed at the camp on Sunday evening.

The regional songwriters work camp is funded under the 10th European Development Fund (EDF) Economic Integration and Trade of the OECS region and is part of the effort by the regional body to better position the creative industries sector to take full advantage of existing and emerging market opportunities and to build the competitiveness of practitioners working in the sector.
