Taken from the Today's Future Sound (TFS) Beat Camp at City of El Cerrito, California, led by director/founder Dr. Elliot Gann and TFS instructors Mike Cochran (aka Mike C the Maitre'D), Felix Hwang (aka The Friendly Traveler) who taught DJ'ing), Jason Lee (aka Autumn Turn) and Michael Hoffman aka Mike the Intern aka The Hoff. Students made original instrumental compositions with both sampling and synthesis techniques for this beat tape/instrumental album and learned on programs such as Pro Tools, Logic, Ableton, FL Studio aka Fruityloops, Vestax, VCI-300, Keith McMillen QuNeo, Akai MPD-32, Akai LPK-25 and other industry standard equipment.
Today's Future Sound is a non-profit organization that teaches music production and performance in schools and community settings to youth (and any other aged populations who are interested!). You can choose to pay $0.00 and download this album for free, but if you choose to pay for it, all funds will go to Today's Future Sound and further programming and community workshops and events. We also teach private lessons.
