194 RECORDINGS was launched in December 2007 by students from NYUs Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at the Tisch School of the Arts. Drawing on the unique talents of the young professionals within the department, 194 Recordings provides a way for these students to actively display the skills they have learned both through the department and from their own experiences in the music industry.
