It informs the music and it’s energetic delivery of Israeli native Raz Bin Sam, the front man of the local 5 piece band ‘Lion I’ who’s fusion of reggae, dance hall and middle eastern rhythms & conscientious lyrics make for an immersive and dynamic experience as the US#1 Independent Reggae Chart topping single debut ‘Something to Remember’ from their current album ‘Own Life’ (2010) attests to.

Raz Bin Sam & Lion I Am will be jamming in SAE Institute’s renowned SSL9000K recording studio (the only one of it’s kind for educational use in the world) from midday on Open Day this Saturday before getting down to business on their forthcoming album ‘Love Comes First’ due out in March through Blaze Fire Music and Planet / MGM.

We think that’s a pretty good reason to drop in on Saturday | where our industry calibre facilities here at SAE Institute’s national centre of excellence will be completely open to expose all the inner workings of our studios including advanced multi-track recording, mixing and surround sound studios and the latest in digital audio, sequencing and electronic music production technology.

Or you can tour our offsite Green Screen facility, and see demonstrations of professional digital video camera techniques, Steadicams and doorway dolly’s, matte painting, compositing, motion tracking, or colour grading and editing in our post production suites here on campus.

During our Open Day, Students and staff will be on hand to give you guided tours through our extensive campus facilities, sharing their learning experience and creative aspirations with you along the way.

Our Academic team will be on hand to discuss the Higher Education pathways that we offer including flexible approaches to study-load. We will also be profiling career paths and work opportunities within the creative industries.

SAE Institute is an Australian Government accredited educational provider and is FEE HELP approved for HE and VET programs which means, if you’re eligible, you don’t have to make any up front payments.

Relax and enjoy demonstrations of student work, BBQ and beats in our sub tropical rainforest surrounds, on what’s likely to be another iconic day here in Byron Bay.

We know you’ll be inspired.
