Making Music - Concord Dawn

Short Film (Full Length) – 2005

Evan Short, one half of drum and bass duo Concord Dawn, talks about electronic music making in this episode from a series made for high school students. Appropriately, he first met future collaborator Matt Harvey in school music lessons and they later reconnected as drum and bass fans while studying audio engineering. To the thundering accompaniment of Concord Dawn’s student radio hit 'Morning Light', Short discusses hardware, software for beginners, the importance of developing good "ears", and the international recognition they have received.

A lot of people think of DJ-ing as a cop out in terms of a performance but it’s not really because it’s almost like an extra creative process on top of what you’ve done in the studio.
– Evan Short (Concord Dawn)
