Saffron Members Club's Creative Comms workshop for this month we have Jenna Knight. Made for our community, Creative Comms provides online sessions for all women and non-binary people in music tech!


Digging deeper into creative publicity, branding and marketing, Jenna will be taking questions from budding artists and industry folks alike to help them grow their careers. Jenna will also draw on the experience of running her own consultancy company, working in the ‘rural industry’ (outside of London) and how transferable skills can be applied across the wider entertainment sector.

Jenna Knight is a publicity professional with over 13 years experience working across UK and international artists both client-side and agency-side with industry label giants including RCA, SYCO, Columbia, Empire, Parlophone and Atlantic, through to more bespoke labels and setups such as emPawa Africa. Jenna launched her company JK PR four years ago, with a view to spotlighting and working with the most exciting and innovate new musicians, creatives and individuals who all stand for something.

Tech Dissect w/ Mor Elian

December 3, 2020, 7:00pm - December 3, 2020, 8:30pm

Saffron Members Club's Tech Dissect workshop for this month we have Mor Elian. Made for our community, Tech Dissect provides online sessions for all women, non-binary and minority genders in music tech!

November's special guest is Mor Elian - www.soundcloud.com/morelian

Live and direct from Berlin we welcome Mor Elian as our host for Tech Dissect this month. This will be a listening/A&R session, so submit your tracks to us in advance and share with our global community.

Mor Elian is a Berlin based DJ and producer originating from Tel Aviv and Los Angeles. Label owner at "Fever Am", and booker at "Into The Woods" underground parties in Los Angeles. We are so excited to have her host this online session, attendees will send us your music in advance, listen to each other's musical creations, constructively critique and support one another with personal and practical tips and advice.

---------------

SUBMIT YOUR TRACK FOR A&R IN THE SESSION:
We know that sharing your music can be a nerve-wracking thing, but we would like to invite attendees to submit one of their own original tracks for potential use in the A&R session for group feedback, If you would like to send in either a full track, a short clip, even just a drum loop, then please do so by 9am GMT on Monday 30th Nov.

Email [email protected] with your chosen audio file, preferably as an MP3 with a link to it on either google drive, soundcloud or dropbox. Please do not send audio as an email attachment or as a Sendspace or Wetransfer file, if possible! Also, please include a sentence or two outlining what area you are looking for feedback or advice on, or, if you don’t have a specific thing and just want general feedback then that’s fine too! Please do not send in a track if you do not plan on attending the session itself.

It won’t be possible to spotlight everyone’s submissions in the session, so please don’t feel perturbed if we don’t get to yours. We hope that everyone who joins the session will learn some tricks and tips, build community links with other producers/music folk and strengthen active listening and critique skills.

== ABOUT SAFFRON ==
Saffron is a music tech initiative taking an intersectional approach to redressing the gender imbalance in the industry. Saffron operates as a social enterprise that primarily offers training in music production, sound engineering and DJing, as well as running an artist development program and record label. The music tech industry is currently composed of just 5% women. Saffron’s aim is to increase that figure, advancing gender equality in the sector by creating a safe space for women and non-binary people to learn and build confidence.

== GENDER POLICY ==
The gender imbalance in the music technology industry is well-recognised. While Saffron is absolutely not ‘anti-men’, we see that a shorter-term solution is to provide fellowship and learning environments that are not dominated by the cisgender male perspective. Therefore, the 7 DAYS OF SOUND event is intended for women, non-binary, trans and other gender non-conforming folks to attend. While we do not ban cisgender men from attending, we hope that they will respect that this event is not intended for them.
