MixMash Studios brings together music makers and sound samplers from across the globe to create new and imaginative compositions.
Building on several previous Make Music Day projects – Street Studio Cities, Bedroom Studios, and Lockdown Sound Challenge – MixMash Studios will invite people around the world to contribute samples between June 6 – June 20, 2021. Everyone is invited to send in short recordings of bass lines, barking dogs, vocals, machine noises, or anything else they find intriguing. (Return to this page for the submission form.)
Then, on Make Music Day, producers will have 24 hours to create an original piece of music using only the samples provided, and nothing more. Some producers will take on the additional challenge – and glory – of livestreaming their production process and creating a finished track in just one hour!
All participants are encouraged to share short videos on social media of them creating samples or work in progress on their tracks using the hashtags #mixmashstudios and #makemusicday.
MixMash Studios is a collaboration between the Make Music Alliance, Make Music Day UK, and Make Music Australia.
