Workshop 2: November 13 – November 25, 2011
Apply: February 2 – April 4, 2011
Mixcloud is really stoked to be supporting applications to the RBMA seminars in Tokyo later this year.
The Red Bull Music Academy has circumnavigated the globe, with previous editions putting down roots in cities like Barcelona, Cape Town, Toronto, Sao Paulo, London and Melbourne. With its rep as a paradise for vinyl hunters and technology lovers alike, there have long been calls to hold an Academy in Tokyo – and this year, that’s exactly where the Academy’s headed, with the full clip of events, workshops and studio sessions coming to town from October 23 to November 25, 2011.
The Red Bull Music Academy is an international workshop, touching down in a different city each year. Over two fortnight-long ‘terms’, some of the finest purveyors of rhythm and sound from all over the world gather between the Academy’s walls. There’s always that sense of synchronicity when music lovers find music lovers. But it’s even better when they get to meet up in person.
That’s why Mixcloud and the Red Bull Music Academy are pleased to invite producers, instrumentalists, vocalists, and DJs near you to apply to be part of the Academy in Tokyo. The application form can be downloaded from www.redbullmusicacademy.com and should be sent to Academy HQ together with a music demo between February 2 and April 4, 2011. A jury made up of label heads, music journalists and Academy team members will then carefully deliberate over each application. Two groups of 30 will be selected to represent a broad spectrum of music styles and levels of experience: from singer-songwriters to DIY synth designers and orchestral composers or digital beatmakers.
In addition, Red Bull Music Academy Radio will be uploading a series of weekly mixes to Mixcloud, featuring past Academy Alumni. Listen to the latest installment from the Road To Tokyo series from Desto below.
