For the past six years, open-air recording studios have appeared on sidewalks in cities around the world on June 21st to celebrate Make Music Day. In these Street Studio Cities, pioneered by Found Sound Nation and Harman, world-class DJs and producers invited passers-by to contribute to a spontaneous music production session, using only the audio recorded on the spot.
This year, while people around the world are staying safer at home, producers will continue this tradition with Bedroom Studios – live-streaming their production process from home, while creating a collaborative track with short audio clips sent in by viewers.
Bedroom Studios will offer a window into music production, and the challenge of producing with completely unknown inputs, bringing music makers together from bedroom to bedroom. For more information click here
On June 21, music rings out simultaneously across more than 120 countries. Whether you are beneath a skyscraper in Beijing or along the shore of a small Greek fishing village, you will find people making music.
In 2020, for the second year, the Make Music Alliance is organizing a day-long video stream on June 21 showing the rich diversity of Make Music Day events around the world.
Check our WWW.MAKEMUSICDAY.ORG for the stream from 9am – 11pm Eastern Time
