Peter Hyun is back this week to take you behind the music and into the K-pop studio...

Making Music 101 - what do you need to get started? 

  • Equipment for a recording studio
  • Not only music producers - singers also need to become familiar with using recording software and techniques if they wish to be in the industry as recording artists

When you start producing music...

  • Start out making music of your favourite style
  • Get feedback – not just to other producers or musicians but also friends outside the industry

Episode Highlight

  • Peter sings an English version of Growing Pains where the lyrics were written & sent in by fans (pretty cool!)

Old school:

  • Peter talks about Seo Taiji introducing Hip-Hop in the early 90s when the Korean popular music scene was still quite closed off to other influence.
  • Jazz and its influence on K-pop: Swing, big-band music.
