I’ve been putting this studio together over the past year and am now at the point where I’m able to start exploring its sonic character…working on a new tune called “The Creek” recorded through a pair of AKG c414s in a mid-side configuration.

2020 – 2021 has been a year of new and exciting ways to make music, collaborating over distances. The WCU CMAP faculty have been working on a few and we’re excited to share the first with you. Here’s a composition by CMAP Voice Instructor Wendy Jones – “Choosing Joy”.

This performance features several Western Carolina University School of Music CMAP faculty:
Wendy Jones, vocals – CMAP Voice Instructor
Micah Thomas, drums – CMAP Percussion Instructor
Jim Elenteny, bass – Recording Engineer, CMAP Program Coordinator
Chris Beyt, guitar – Assistant Professor of Jazz Guitar and Recording Arts
Pavel Wlosok, piano – Professor of Jazz
