“Hello…I’m Peter Brewis. I mainly make music with my brother under the name of Field Music. We’ve made five albums since 2005 as Field Music, each one aiming to transform our influences into something that owe can call our own. We self produce our recordings at our own little studio in Sunderland, writing, playing, arranging, mixing and mastering. Our approach to making records is quite possibly a little idiosyncratic but it has worked for us so far and has led us to working on many other people’s records. In the masterclass session I intend to go though the process I use from start to finish – influences, writing, demo-ing, recording and mixing. See you there.”
