Ghana would be hosting Beyoncé’s vocal effect (fx) engineer Carl Golembeski in the first-ever Ghana International Music Clinic, which is scheduled for November 2019 in Accra under the theme: ‘Professionalism In Vocal Fx for live Music Performances’.

The event dubbed ‘clinic’ because it will diagnose musical problems and prescribe solutions in a practical workshop setting.

Speaking at the executive launch of the Ghana International Music Clinic, Nii Armah Addy, founder of the Institute of Professional Event Management (IPEM), organizers of the event, said, “What is lacking in Ghanaian music is their inability to translate studio excellence into real live music performance to give their audience amazing experience at shows.”

“Ghanaian musicians spend so much time and money in the studio to produce excellent tracks yet same quality of sound is not felt in their live performances,” Nii Armah lamented.

He continued, “In these days that the sale of CDs has gone very low, musicians’ ability to perform well in live concert is what endears them to show organizers and audience. The Ghana International Music Clinic is the solution to translate studio experience into real live performances in all genres of music. Participants at the event will see, touch and feel hands-on demonstration by the facilitator, Carl Golembeski.”

For the past four years, Carl has worked as Beyoncé’s vocal fx engineer, developing a system to take her studio fx seamlessly into a live sound environment for real time control.

Carl is a sound artist, vocal fx engineer and music producer in various sonic territories. Most of his career has been in the form of live sound. He has toured the world with artistes such as Bruno Mars, Carlinhos Brown, and Mary J. Blige. He has served organisations like Ram Dass LSR Foundation and Joseph Campbells Audio Archives.

His passion lies in the discovery of sound itself which has led him on a universal sonic journey in pursuit of the intersection of harmony, love and truth.

Carl’s approach to music currently is what he calls ‘creativity as service’, placing the art form and its expression as the priority over the industry standards like deadlines, budgets and marketing.
