Global Academy Of Electronica Skills

Posted by Molli Fire on Wednesday, 11April07

every year since 2002, the Red Bull Academy has gathered an overwhelming roster of teachers and pupils together from around the globe to share skills, knowledge, experience, equipment, and philosophy.

Wyl Menmuir published this on the FLY website at the end of last week actually, but i just noticed it today. there is still plenty of time to check out this Academy idea, mull it over, and then apply, so i wanted to share it with you right away!

The Toronto Red Bull Academy 2007 kicks off this April with Info Sessions across the UK from DJs, producers and musicians.

Some of the UK’s most promising hip-hop, soul, broken beat, dubstep, D&B artists will be headed out to Toronto as part of the Academy, which offers an insight into music making today.

Music makers, producers and DJs can apply to be jetted to Toronto for two weeks in September and October to get tuition from the likes of Bob Moog, Phonte from Little Brother, the Mizell Brothers and twenty-year-old dubstep DJ, Skream. The emphasis is on creating, with a combination of live performances in the host city and lectures in studios.

The Academy is running taster days across the UK in April for anyone interested with talks from Four Tet (London), Greg Wilson (Leeds), Alex Smoke (Glasgow) and Waajeed (Platinum Pies Pipers, Detroit) in Birmingham. As all the sessions are free it’s a win win for anyone wanting to further their music making.

The UK Info Sessions are:
Wed 18 April, at Glasgow’s Sub Club with guest lecturers Alex Smoke, Beni G, (Mixologists) and Marcia Graham. Starts at 8pm.
Fri 20 April, at London’s Roundhouse with lectures from Seiji, Four Tet, DJ Zinc, studio workshops from Danny Breaks, Zinc, Tony Nwachukwu, Logic, Reason, Ableton Live and Serato. Starts midday.
Mon 23 April at Leeds Mine University Union, with lectures from Greg Wilson and Skream.
Thur 26 April at Birmingham’s The Old Library with Waajeed (Platinum Pied Pipers) and Marcus Intalex.

the Academy website also hosts numerous educational materials in the form of videos, podcasts, streams and the like. whether you apply for the full enrollment experience or not, this provides many opportunities to hone your skills as a producer, dj, MC, sound engineer, etc.

there are many more big names and amazing info sessions, workshops, and after parties in more international cities than what i have listed here. the site is coded in a flash player, so i have to hand copy each name and place, so instead, i am encouraging you, nudging you, pressuring you to go check the calendar! especially if you are in melbourne, europe, or south america. i did not see anything planned for any US cities, but there were at least 2 or 3 events in Canada. there will also an info session and equipment tour held in the Tuff Gong recording studios in Jamaica!

enjoy the events, apply for a scholarship, and pop back in here to share your experiences with me, please! :)
