Street Studio World 2016
Found Sound Nation teamed up with audio innovator HARMAN and the Make Music Alliance (producers of Make Music New York) for a day of global music making. Street Studios were set up in eleven cities across five countries on Make Music Day, each run by a team of talented local producers. Street Studio World producers had gathered in NYC to participate in our annual FSN Institute workshops the week before, practicing the Street Studio method, and then spreading out across the globe for this day of simultaneous music making.

About Street Studios |
Street Studios take the basic elements of the music studio to a public place and make the process accessible to anyone in the surrounding area -- revealing a sort of sonic collective unconscious of a community. With a simple setup, musicians and producers begin a process of creating and recording music, while at the same time encouraging passersby to join in. Traffic, chatter, birds, stories, spontaneous songs are all incorporated into music composed on the spot. Often people will begin a musical idea only to have it finished by someone passing by an hour later. After the session, producers craft these recordings into cohesive pieces, attempting to capture the energy of the particular space. These finished songs and soundscapes are then shared with all who participated.
