And from Madrid back to NY. 10 years after visiting pretty much every continent the Red Bull Music academy flies back to New York for some of the finest workshops, talks & events in the musical planet (along with the academy itself for those few fortunates who will learn during 3 days and won’t stop practicing, learning and having fun).
While there’s still more than 7 months until the 14th edition of the academy takes place submissions just opened last week for another 60 lucky people to learn, absorb and join the “select club” that year after year discovers new talents from amazingly varied backgrounds.
You should know that besides being over 21, you’ll be competing with several thousands of people (last year over 8K people applied…), but this shouldn’t be a drawback, real music passionates have made it through… and as the academy puts it “you don’t have to know how to disassemble an SP-1200 using only a dime and a toothpick”, just love your freaky sounds.
Submissions are open, all you need is to download & complete their application form and send it before April 2nd with a sample CD of your best rubbish, who knows… you maybe a lucky participant this fall. Good Luck!
