Ever wondered how music is created and captured on a vinyl record?

With the renaissance for affection of the vinyl record in mind, a unique event is giving music enthusiasts the chance to see great original Kiwi songs played, recorded — and that work cut on a vinyl record – in three hours.

Musician, songwriter, producer and now vinyl-cutter Jesse Wilde, is staging Journey to My Vinyl Destination, on Saturday, March 16, from 1pm.

“It’s for vinyl record lovers and anyone who enjoys good music,” says Jesse, a former long-time Bucklands Beach resident.

“You will see a live music performance recorded, mixed, and mastered and cut to vinyl right before your very eyes. The whole process of vinyl lathing, mixing and mastering for vinyl will be explained in this three-hour event.”

All the proceeds are going to music therapy, support and benevolent charity Music Helps Awhina Puoro, whose patrons are New Zealand music legends, Neil Finn and Lorde, Jesse says.

Journey to My Vinyl Destination is reelin’ and a rockin’ at Jesse’s cool and modern Studio 38, home of his Wilde Records Recording Studios, in Airedale Street, Auckland City.

“Good things take time,” Jesse says.
“This is a celebration of the artistry of both live and recorded music in a world where digital platforms diminish its value and reduces music to a commodity. We’re creating hand-lathed collectible vinyl — tangible musical artefacts to cherish.”
