Wayne Snow’s studio sessions are physical, expressive, and often a lot of fun. When he’s in songwriting mode, he deploys acting techniques to explore and recall his experiences, and teams up with a producer to resurface them into creative energy for his music. In March 2023, he and producer Golo Schultz got together for a Loop Session to show how they capture his ideas and sculpt them into song.
The pair joined moderator Katarina Holmberg at Brewery Studios in Berlin for a live-streamed demonstration of how they made a track from Wayne Snow’s forthcoming album. You can see how they worked together to give form to his ideas – first by recording body percussion, then adding vocal improvisation to build up the track layer by layer.
Check out the full recording to learn more about Wayne Snow’s intensive songwriting practice, and see how he and Golo work together in the studio to bring his ideas to life.
At each Loop Session we spend some time with an artist to learn about their work and ideas. So far we’ve explored the art of listening with Pan Daijing, learned about performance from machìna and discovered Grand River’s creative process.
