Women’s Audio Mission (WAM), a San Francisco-based nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts, is presenting the organization’s first-ever recording arts conference for women in Los Angeles on June 9, 2018 at the legendary Capitol Studios.
WAM @ Capitol is an immersive recording arts conference for women featuring some of the country’s top women engineers and music executives, including sound engineer Marcella “Ms. Lago” Araica (Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Madonna), COO of Capitol Music Group Michelle Jubelirer, Vice President of Capitol Studios Paula Salvatore, music producer/songwriter, Shakari “TRAKGIRL” Boles (Jhene Aiko, Luke James), and WAM Executive Director and Founder Terri Winston.
Women’s Audio Mission trains over 1,500 women and girls a year in the recording arts to address the critical lack of women in the audio industry (less than 5%), and will be bringing their award-winning curriculum to Los Angeles for the first time for WAM @ Capitol. The conference will include presentations, discussions, and interactive workshops on topics ranging from mixing, beat making, and mic placement to the music business and will be followed by a networking reception. WAM @ Capitol has already been featured in Variety and Music Business Worldwide.
“We’re delighted to partner with the iconic Capitol Studios to bring WAM’s training programs to Los Angeles,” says WAM Founder and Executive Director, Terri Winston. “WAM @ Capitol offers an incredible line-up of top women engineers, music producers, and music industry executives that will provide unparalleled professional development opportunities to emerging women music producers and engineers in Los Angeles and beyond.”
The conference is open to women (transgender and cisgender), non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals. Those interested in attending can learn more about the event, panelists and workshop leaders, and purchase tickets here: WAM @ Capitol.
