Shaking Through is a video documentary and recording series that brings select artists into the studio and captures the entire recording process, including interviews with the musicians, curators, and audio production team.
With this series we are committed to enabling self expression and seek to inspire and educate the community about the creative process, and the art and science of recording music.
"A unique music advocacy project...some of the most
stunning music video around today."
"An Inspired recording project"
“One of the very best online music series.”
Weathervane members can download the multi-track raw audio and stems from these sessions to practice their mixing skills, make their own creative remixes, and share their work back with the community for feedback and support.
We have a catalog of nearly 60 tracks from incredible artists from across the country and the world at large. They run the gamut from folk to rock to RnB. You can listen to all the tracks on our episode pages.
In every episode we tell the story of the song from 2 perspectives: The artist and the production team. Each story reveals insights about the creative process, and highlights the craft, techniques and processes that go into recording music.
We release the raw audio from each song for members to remix, and we provide space for people to share and talk about each other's remixes. It's a unique opportunity to get hands on experience and quality feedback on your work.
WHO WE ARE
Shaking Through is produced by Weathervane Music, a
non-profit that's building community through the practice of supporting, engaging with, and creating music.
Our vision is for a healthier music ecosystem in which artists and audiences are equally engaged, equally important, and equally committed to the creation of music in our culture.
Shaking Through is FREE for the artists we select. We give them two full days to in the studio, away from other pressures of the music industry, and connect them with amazing collaborators and resources. We've found over and over again that this yields some of the best work of their careers.
We take every aspect of the process and share it with our members. Curious about the artists vision? We share that. Want to know how the song was engineered? We share that. Want to take the raw audio we created to see how the song sounded at the moment we were recording it? Well you get the picture....
We firmly believe that no one can, or should, create in a vacuum. It's our goal not just to share these resources but to give you the opportunity to discuss them with each other. You've proven excellent at giving constructive feedback and raising the bar for community members all over the world.
Shaking Through is a documentary series about the vision and craft of recording music, seen through the eyes of the best independent musicians working today.
