DJ Axenzo Santa Barbara Live DJ

Background

Axenzo had recently graduated San Diego State University with a degree in mechanical engineering when he found that having achieved a major life goal, namely getting a degree to make his parents happy, had quite an interesting effect on him. Now that he’d achieved that, what else was possible? What could he achieve if he pursued something he was downright passionate about—music.

While an engineering student, Axenzo had tried to double in music but the classes weren’t stimulating and were “very theoretical” with nothing practical or new to offer. Brewing at the back of his mind for years been the idea of learning how to produce EDM. While it wasn’t a choice his mother would consider practical, to him it was the natural conclusion. Axenzo was an active EDM explorer who attended shows regularly, a lifelong musician who played guitar and piano, and even wrote melodies on a whim. Music was just the thing going on in his mind.

After completing his college degree with high marks, Axenzo spent a number of months training with a professional EDM music mentor who taught him Pro Tools and Logic with direct, one-on-one lessons. Although he already knew how to play a couple instruments he’d never set his hands on a DAW. Nevertheless he excelled fast, and consistently challenged himself while getting hands-on training and tips from his music mentor, a longtime engineer and EDM producer himself. During his time in the program Axenzo was able to create his own EDM songs, first starting on MIDI, then composing from within a digital environment. Crossing the bridge from having to play and record, to creating digitally “opened a door” for the EDM creator and DJ.

In the two years since graduating the program, Axenzo has built a promising career in EDM as a DJ who has opened for Bob Sinclar, Robin Schulz, Steve Aoki, Marshmello, Borgeous, Nicky Romero, among others. Nevertheless, for him DJing and especially composing new material as a producer is a never ending journey. The great unifier isn’t by genre or culture for the rising talent. Regularly dipping into multiple genres and researching far and wide, Axenzo is in quest of something singularly specific: “I’m trying to create something that every time people listen to my tracks they’ll know it’s me. That’s my focus right now. I’m working on it every day.”

Now, the melodies and musical ideas Axenzo used to write on a whim are being put to use professionally as he divides his workdays between producing new material and performing at venues. He says, he’s even got a surefire way of capturing the music when it hits: “I open the recorder on my phone and just sing the melody to myself. Even if I’m in the shower, I’ll get out and record it.”

Now versed in Ableton as well as Logic and Pro Tools, Axenzo is fluent in the various DAWS and he’s confident in his capacity to continually explore and grow as an artist. And as for future goals, he’s got a few: “I definitely would like to play in big festivals. Hopefully at Ultra Miami, EDC Las Vegas, and I would like to go worldwide. I’m working on it. I know there’s lots of competition, but I think nothing is impossible.”

As for the time he spent as an apprentice in the program, Axenzo says, “It was an amazing journey. I am extremely thankful.”

Axenzo currently performs weeklies at The Hard Rock Café in Las Vegas, Nevada, and The Pool House and Sunset Vibes in San Diego, California.

Gregory Hainer Santa Barbara Post Production

Background

Recording Connection mentor Gregory Hainer is an interesting case. Usually our Recording mentors work primarily in the music industry but Gregory has made a successful career for himself in music as well as film, television, and video game entertainment as a music composer, voice over specialist, Sound FX designer and mixer on numerous projects including: Plants vs. Zombies 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Guild Wars 2, Prince of Egypt, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, We Were Soldiers, Dishonored, Black Hawk Down, and many more.

Gregory does most of his work from Scorpio Sound, his boutique studio located in the Hollywood Hills. His unique skills-set, talent, and setup enables him to do work larger audio studios can’t. “From a client’s perspective, I own the studio, so there is no middle management overhead to worry about because the owner/operator is also the creative head. This means I have the freedom to choose to spend a little more time with my clients in order to get things perfect versus having to be out of a studio by a specific time.” Specialty might as well be Gregory’s middle name. “I get quite a few calls for the most unusual or difficult to design stuff that many in-house teams can’t quite seem to pull off convincingly, such as creating sounds for creatures, magic spells, sci-fi effects, light sabers and the like. But I will also get the occasional call to do the less-fun direct stuff like cleaning up poorly recorded production audio from a film, or digging out inaudible archival dialogue from excessive background noise.”

On top of working in the film, TV, and video game industries Gregory also takes on Recording Connection apprentices and teaches them about both the industry and the craft of audio engineering.

Music Scene in Santa Barbara

The Santa Barbara Recording Connection

If you’re looking for a quality music school for audio engineering and music production in the Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo area–look no further! We’re the RECORDING CONNECTION, the music school that gets you hooked up as an audio student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo recording studio, where you will learn your choice of music production, audio engineering, mixing, live audio, electronic music-and its many sub-genres (dub fusion, industrial, house music, trance and more), club DJ and post production audio. One of the best ways to make a start in this area’s recording scene is to apprentice (extern) inside a recording studio in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria or San Luis Obispo–and we’re the ones who can get your foot in the door.

You don’t have to spend 20-50 thousand dollars to go to music recording school; you can go to music school in a real recording studio for far less. Get on the inside track by getting tour education in a real-world environment. Our MUSIC RECORDING SCHOOL alternative offers a highly effective and affordable way to get started in the music industry.

To APPLY for our Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo Music School, click here.

The cities of Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo are located along California’s south-central coastline, on a 100-mile stretch of Highway 101. Although this area is shadowed by the huge music scene of L.A. a short drive south, the Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo area still has a solid musical presence, with plenty of live venues and recording studios to service the needs of the area. This area has also been home to a number of notable bands and artists, not the least of which are Jon Anderson (lead singer of Yes), Peter Buck (guitarist for R.E.M.), indie rock band Watashi Wa, rock band Toad the Wet Sprocket, and pop superstar Katy Perry, just to name a few.  If you’re considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, the Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo area has plenty of learning opportunities, and is close enough to the Los Angeles area that it can provide a quieter alternative to living there.
