For the past three years on June 21st, small mobile recording studios have magically appeared on sidewalks in cities across the world.
These Street Studio Cities, organized with Found Sound Nation and HARMAN, bring world-class DJs and producers onto the streets for Make Music Day, setting up their mobile recording studios in front of art galleries, on downtown plazas, and in parks. In one afternoon, producers invite passersby from the community to join in a completely improvised music creation session. At the end of the day, each producer mixes down one track, using only the material recorded on-site, to share the sounds of their city with the world.
Make Music Day 2018 will feature Street Studios in cities across the U.S. (Chattanooga TN, Detroit MI, Los Angeles CA, Montclair NJ, Mountain View CA, Nashville TN, New York NY, Portland ME, Reedsburg WI, Salem OR, Seattle WA, Somerville NJ, Stamford CT) and in Bangalore, Budapest, Lagos, Moscow, Querétero (Mexico), and Tokyo.
