The Process…

The pre-process…

Choosing the demographic and target audience for Chris Treborn’s next project was an easy task.

Chris Treborn has performed for a few Middle Schools in 2012 and has found that the attention span of pre-teens varies from 6th – 8th graders. In fact, their entire attitude and swagger varies greatly among 11, 12, and 13 year olds. So how can you approach them with music and have them all listen and relate. The mission to reach the pre-teen demographic can be daunting. But that was a challenge Chris Treborn was up for. He knew he had an opportunity to grow and potentially speak the middle schooler’s language.

And now the creative process…

First off, Chris Treborn chose instrumentals that were appropriate for the youth he intended to reach. The genres of beats vary from Hip-Hop, to Dance, Electronica, Dub-Step, and even some Pop and R&B. After which, he narrowed it down to 15 ear-pleasing songs. Second, the writing process. Chris Treborn listened to the instrumentals thoroughly and chose a few songs which he knew would sound perfect with a featured emcee. Next, he sent out the beats for other rappers to write to while he writes to his solo tracks. Between writing lyrics, Chris Treborn records a new song each week. The plan is to write and record until all 15 songs are complete. After all is said and done, Chris Treborn will go back in and ensure each song sounds good in quality by mixing and mastering.

In the end…

Chris Treborn will be able to release this project for free and allow the masses to download and duplicate the music. Hopefully, fans will share and spread the music with the youth in their lives and Chris Treborn can perform the age appropriate & family friendly material with the middle schoolers.
