Kevrenna How it works

Story tellers, Poets, Musicians, Producers we need your skills!

We have created a conveyor belt of music production. You can jump into a project at any stage and submit your own version of “that” song or you can begin a project from scratch by developing your own narrative ideas. You can also work offline and follow each stage of the project at home and submit your work as a portfolio once completed.

Kevrenna is Cornish for Sharing – the idea being that we encourage other people to collaborate on our ideas and we help to develop the work of our peers.

After each stage of the project send your submissions to songs@kevrennarecords.com and we’ll upload them and keep a record of who has created which elements.

Challenges

If you don’t want to commit to the song writing platform but you do want to stretch your skills then we’ll be launching a new challenge everyday for you to work on. This could be a great resource for teachers to use!

Master Tapes

Cornwall Music Education Hub (In Partnership with Feast, Sontronics, bandlab, Routenote, Antelope audio, Native Instruments, Steinberg and PMC) have created Kevrenna records as a tool to share your talents and engage with the recording industry. we’re a real record label that will release your music to the world.

You keep all of the IP/ Copyright for the sections you work upon as well as getting any royalty’s that are collected on your behalf.

The site is run by a team of educators – (fully dbs checked and GDPR compliant) working for Cornwall Music Education Trust to provide musical activities during the lock down period and beyond!

We have made every effort to make sure that the site is secure and that only students under the age of 19 are participating and that there is no peer to peer contact without going through a third party moderator. There is however always a risk to activities online and therefore we would request that students are cautious to any contact that they might receive, never give out personal details and refer any concerns directly to ryan@kevrennarecords.com or contact music hub Cornwall directly. We would also ask that parents keep an “open door” approach to their students online education.

We hope you make some great music!
