Pro7ect Announces Dates For Its 2017 Songwriters Retreat
Pro7ect is returning to Brightons Hotel Pelirocco from the 12th - 17th March 2017 for another stimulating week of musical collaboration and for the second year running acclaimed producer Andrew Levy will be taking part in the event.
 
The official launch of Pro7ect 2017 will take place at the Hotel Pelirocco on Friday 20th May 2016 during the Great Escape. It will feature a performance by Eddie Prove, a guest artist from this years retreat, and will be broadcast live by 1Brighton FM.
 
Now in its fourth year, this exciting retreat gives songwriters and artists the opportunity to work with A-list producers to write, record and produce great music. These face to face collaborations with producers such as Liam Howe (Lana Del Ray/Ellie Goulding/FKA Twigs), Stew Jackson (Massive Attack/Phantom Limb) and Andrew Levy (Brand New Heavies) has already resulted in success, with a number of songs from previous events attracting attention from the international music industry.
 
Its a great experience - an eye opener and very inspirational, says Andrew Levy, who is already confirmed to take part in the 2017 retreat.
 
Being thrown into a creative environment with people you dont know is an odd thing to do, but fun, adds Stew Jackson.
 
Our aim is to facilitate creative retreats where songwriters, producers and musicians join forces to inspire musical collaboration, says Lisa Fitzgibbon, who co-founded Pro7ect with Ivor Novello nominated producer/composer Ian Wallman. The benefits of collaboration are obvious this year, for example, 14 participating songwriters and artists wrote and recorded 15 songs in four days. That level of creativity would be hard to sustain on your own, but when you get a group of like-minded people together, it is amazing to see what they can achieve.
 
The inspirational setting of the Hotel Pelirocco adds an additional element of creativity to the experience. Now a by-word for those seeking seaside getaways laced with glamour and hedonism, the hotel has 19 individually themed rooms each reflecting a different aspect of RocknRoll culture. Since its inception it has attracted many celebrity and music industry guests including the Happy Mondays, Primal Scream, Scissor Sisters, New Order, Chrissie Hynde and the Chemical Brothers.
 
For the duration of Pro7ect@The Hotel Pelirocco, four pop-up recording studios are installed at various locations around the hotel. Each studio is equipped with the latest recording technology from renowned equipment manufacturers such as PMC, Focusrite/Novation, Roland and Audio Technica. Participants work in teams led by a producer and write a track a day for four days. The teams are changed each day and the songs are either written for one of the artists in the room or to spec using tip sheets supplied by Pro7ect. Every evening there is a feedback session where teams play the result of their days work to the entire group. 
 
This approach works really well as can be seen by the successes weve had with songs written during previous Pro7ect@The Hotel Pelirocco retreats, Lisa Fitzgibbon adds. Elle Exxe is recording two of our songs on her new LP and another track has gone to a synch option for TOWIE. A track written this year is also an option on the next Brand New Heavies album, while singer/songwriter Eddie Prove may include at least two tracks from this years retreat on his next album.
 
Songwriters and artists who have taken part in previous Pro7ect@The Hotel Pelirocco retreats have nothing but praise for the experience.
 
It is a spot-on venue and the producers provide a level of knowledge and expertise that can only elevate songs as theyre taking shape, says C Kowalchuk who participated in 2015. Fellow 2015 participant, Love Lemon, adds: I had no idea what to expect in the slightest, but it was definitely awesome! The hotel was friggin amazing!

Details of the producers taking part in Pro7ect 2017 will be announced over coming months. The cost of participating is between £789 and £969, which includes food and accommodation for five nights. Places are limited and anyone wishing to take part should visit www.hotelpelirocco.co.uk/hp/pro7ect/ to apply.

Hiltron to Show Latest-Generation HMAM LEO Motorised Satcom Flyaway at GovSatCom 2023

Hiltron Communications has chosen the upcoming GovSatCom 2023 in Luxembourg at which to promote its latest-generation HMAM LEO high speed motorised tracking antenna mount. The event will be held in the European Convention Center on February 23rd.

Based on over 10 years of Hiltron experience in designing, manufacturing and integrating motorised satellite mounts, HMAM LEO is capable of accommodating parabolic antennas of up to 2.4 metres diameter. Supported on a high-stability ground pillar, it incorporates the computing resources needed to track satellites using the NORAD TLE (two-line element) data format which defines satellite locations based on their location and velocity. The system can lock onto the desired LEO satellite within the approximately 10 minute timespan where the target satellite is in sight.
