COMING SOON – 4 Day Cassini Songwriting Retreat – North Coast Kangaroo Island.

The Cassini Songwriting Retreat has been designed to provide artists the opportunity to grow and to inspire and explore creativity through composition. Over a focused 4 day period songs created will be recorded to capture the initial spark / inspiration and magic of the composition. Whether you are looking to improve your songwriting, collaboration or creative flow this retreat is for you.

Based at a secluded stone cottage on the north coast of Kangaroo Island the natural environment and workshops will help artists to totally immerse themselves in their passion of songwriting and expression while promoting collaboration without the distractions of modern day society.

Artists will find themselves looking out at a beautiful seascape while recording inspiring raw and emotional performances to be captured digitally.

The property features a beautiful rocky coastline, an abundance of wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, goannas, wedge tail eagles, sea eagles, rainbow lorikeet, crimson rosella, blue wren,dolphins and if you time it right the southern right whale.

Historically the property contains a huge heritage listed mulberry tree which is a unique survivor from a colonial garden dating back to 1877.

1881 shearing shed

All files will be forwarded to participants to continue further  development of the recorded works.

Chris’ workshop was a wonderfully challenging experience for our 9 year old daughter. At first she knew only one other class member, but by the end of the week – thanks to Chris’ creative array of team building exercises and musical and technological adventures – she felt confident enough to not only perform in her group, but also to perform a solo at the concert. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed both the team-bonding experience of the pre-concert adrenalin rush and the on-stage performance. She was also fascinated with the editing process in making her first ever music video. The class were provided with many creative ways to convey their musical visions – the final products were truly impressive. And yet the most noticeable aspect was how much fun they were having making and starring in the music videos. We parents cannot ask for more than that! – Nicole and ED Westrich, parents from the TUNED IN Summer Music Workshop at the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre, January 2013.

“I felt that the camp was very beneficial to my son. Not only did it help improve his confidence in public performance, it also opened a whole new world to him as far as songwriting and production. I feel that he enjoyed all aspects of the camp, especially performing in front of family, friends and complete strangers, it gave him quite a buzz! The final cd is what he’s most proud of though. I think the camp was wonderful and I would definitely enroll him in future camps. Thank you for giving my son a renewed passion for performing. It’s lovely to see that spark come back to life.” – Kylie Schmaal , parent from the Junior Creative music and Video Holiday Camp at the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre, Tanunda, July 2012.

“My son gained a huge boost in confidence – being able to perform in front of an audience was something he would never have been able to do before the holiday camp”. – Mel Menadue, parent from the Junior Creative Music and Video Holiday Camp at the Barossa Arts and Convention Centre, Tanunda, July 2012.

“My daughter had a great time during the week, this was the first time she’s been involved in writing and recording a song and also producing a video. This was very beneficial  to her confidence and coping skills”. – Parent from the Junior Creative Music and Video Holiday Camp at the Barosssa Arts and Convention Centre, Tanunda, July 2012.
