Gazelien Records was initiated in 2018 to provide academic and Industry based experience to meet the growing interest of NYUAD students in order to provide them with real-world opportunities. Gazelien Records operates like a major label company, thanks to the support and the music industry experience of the faculty involved. The skills learned and the experience students will gain will be essential training for anyone interested in a career in the Music of Post Production Industry.
With the constant growth of music demands, and technology evolution, training needs must go beyond the scope of preparing students that are looking for an opportunity to get a job in the Industry.
Gazelien Records includes among partners a global network of music technologists and institutions such as the NYU New York, Production Lab, Loa District Recording Studio in Rome, and LUISS University.
Gazelien Records director Professor Matteo Marciano is a Multi-Platinum record producer, mixer, engineer, composer, and educator with over a decade of experience in the music entertainment industry. Professor Marciano has envisioned Gazelien Records as a center that allows for the music technologists, record producers, musicians, at NYUAD and in the U.A.E. to have a practical application in the University. The Center’s team, exclusively NYUAD Students, have thus worked on many national and international projects acquiring a tremendous exposure and skills needed in the Industry.
Projects clusters encourage collaborative, multi-disciplinary work amongst Gazelien Records audio engineers, producers and musicians, making its signature NYUAD Gazelien Records a regional incubator for music technology research and music creation.
