RBMA 2015: Apply Now!
For budding music-makers, the Red Bull Music Academy is a proverbial golden ticket. Inviting around 60 producers, vocalists, instrumentalists, and DJs to attend a two-term stint at its world-travelling Academy – which moves to a different city around the globe with each edition – it’s a chance to fully indulge in creative collaboration while learning from music legends along the way.
Each year’s Academy is custom-built to make the most of the participants’ time, energies and ideas. In 2014’s Tokyo edition, one floor was dedicated to eight custom-built studios and an equipment library – ceiling-high stacks of synths, keyboards, instruments, drum machines, and other circuitry madness – all at their fingertips 24/7. Vocalists darted between studios to lay down hooks, beats were chopped and swapped, and tracks grew through the late nights and honest words while studio mentors Dorian Concept, Carl Craig, Matthew Johnson and more criss-crossed the corridors helping particpants hone their ideas.
