Street Studio – Minneapolis

June 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


On June 21, 2017, small mobile recording studios will magically appear on sidewalks and in parks around the world, including Minneapolis & Saint Paul. These Street Studios bring world-class DJs and producers out of their studios and onto the streets for Make Music Day, a worldwide festival of music in over 750 cities and 120 countries. Over the course of the day, producers record, mix, loop, and play back live sounds, while interacting with the public who stop by to sing, play an instrument, record audio, and become part of this spontaneous, collaborative production of original music. At the end of the day, each producer mixes down one track, using only material recorded on-site, to share with the world as the sound of their city. Stop by the Slam Academy sound booth in The Commons – the beautiful new park next to the Vikings Stadium – and become part of the Sound of Minneapolis!

Slam Academy, located in NE Minneapolis, teaches classes in the digital arts: music production, DJing, Sound Design, and more. Their instructors are devoted to creating a noncompetitive, experiential learning environment to anyone who seeks it, and they believe every student has something valuable to say through their music. Meet instructors at this event, and learn about Slam Academy and recording. They love to answer questions!

Thanks to Slam Academy for hosting, and to American Composers Forum for organizing this event!
