Ghana will host Beyoncé's vocal effect (fx) engineer Carl Golembeski (USA) in the first-ever Ghana International Music Clinic under the theme "Professionalism in vocal fx for live music performances" scheduled for November 2019 in Accra, the capital city of Ghana.

The event is called a Clinic because it will diagnose musical problems and prescribe solutions in a practical workshop setting.

Speaking at the Executive launch of the Ghana International Music Clinic, Nii Armah Addy, Founder of the Institute of Professional Event Management (IPEM), organisers of the event said that "what is lacking in Ghanaian music is their inability to translate studio excellence into real live music performance to give their audience amazing experience at shows."

Nii lamented that "Ghanaian musicians spend so much time and money in the studio to produce excellent tracks yet the same quality of sound is not felt in their live performances." He continued " these days that the sale of CDs has gone very low, musicians' ability to perform well in a live concert is what endears them to show organiser and audience."

The Ghana International Music Clinic is the solution to translate studio experience into real live performances in all genres of music. Participants at the event will see, touch and feel hands-on demonstration by the facilitator Carl Golembeski.

For the past four (4) years, Carl has worked as Beyoncé's Vocal Fx engineer developing a system to take her studio fx seamlessly into a live sound environment for real-time control.

Carl is a sound artist, vocal fx engineer and music producer in various sonic territories. Most of his career has been in the form of live sound. He has toured the world with artists such as Bruno Mars, Carlinhos Brown, and Mary J. Blige. He has served organisations like Ram Dass LSR Foundation and Joseph Campbells Audio Archives.

His passion lies in the discovery of sound itself which has led on a universal sonic journey in pursuit of the intersection of harmony, love, and truth.

Carl's approach to music currently is what he calls "creativity as service" placing the art form and its expression as the priority over the industry standards like deadlines, budgets, and marketing. His recent collaboration with Brazilian artist RAAE has blossomed from this approach.

The Ghana International Music Clinic is a glorious opportunity for music entrepreneurs, musicians, sound engineers, music producers, instrumentalist, students of music, music lecturers and facilitators, music researchers, music directors, composers, choirs, prospective musicians, event organisers, etc. to leapfrog their music career and business to international heights by participating at the event for a token.
