Track Meet

Make Music Day

Join composers, producers and songwriters from around the world in the second annual collaborative race against the clock.

Over the course of six hours, teams of four musicians will create brand new original tracks in a creative relay. Using the virtual audio workstation SoundTrap, each musician will get exactly one hour to add their contribution before the next teammate takes over. At the end of the day, we will bounce each team’s track and host them online for everyone to hear.

This year, Track Meet will feature a special instrument: the musical leaf! Each team will begin their collaborative relay with a pre-recorded track by an expert leaf player, layering their musical contributions on these unique beginnings.

Registration closed on June 10th. Stay tuned here for the creations! (But if you have your own team of 3-5 musicians who would like to participate in Track Meet together, it’s not too late – email!)
