What is Darkroom Records? Darkroom is a free recording studio for CPS high school students to record and produce in a professional environment. . Darkroom was closed back in March 2020 because of COVID-19, it just opened back up this September. 

A Darkroom intern is a student that helps out with promotions, recording setups, and artist  bookings which ensures studio time for those students who want to record their music in the studio. They also help set up showcases for the artists that record in the studio so they can perform live in front of an audience. 

2021’s Junior Darkroom Intern, Jennifer Pereyra talked about the learning process of an Audio Engineer.

“It’s difficult at first because you have to remember a lot of things but when you get the hang of it you will get used to it,” Pereyra said.
