Street Studio Cities | 
4 Years of Global Street Studios

For the past three years, on June 21st, small mobile recording studios have magically appeared on sidewalks in cities across the U.S. and the world. These Street Studio Cities, organized by Found Sound Nation alongside the Make Music Alliance and HARMAN, brought world-class DJs and producers around the globe onto the streets for Make Music Day (Fête de la Musique), 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 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. We’ve produced over 40 Street Studio Cities studios from Bangalore to Los Angeles, Tel Aviv to the Bronx and this year we’re looking to expand our program and deepen the project’s impact in New York.

We'll be announcing the details for Street Studio Cities 2018 soon! If you are interested in hosting a studio please reach out to
