soundscape saturday :: red bull academy

The Red Bull Music Academy is a platform for thosewho shape our musical future, a music workshop that has been traveling the world since 1998.  Setting up our EQ HQ for two fortnight long terms in a different musical metropolis each year, we pull together pioneers of days gone by and musical legends of tomorrow from all aspects of rhythm and sound.

For two weeks, 60 selected participants: producers, vocalists, DJs, instrumentalists, and all around musical mavericks from all around the globe come together to check gear, chat on tunes, play in clubs, get a rare glimpse into local musical hybrids in a different country, swap musical visions in the studio, and discover closely guarded secrets of mixing desk magic straight from those who started revolutions in sound.  They're the people we look up to, and they're looking to you for a fresh perspective in turn.
