With 12 street recording studios set up across New York's five boroughs on June 21, Make Music Day, Found Sound Nation and the NAMM Foundation connected with hundreds of people offering them an impromptu opportunity to make music.
Using the sounds that people across the city made that day, producers Lorna Dune and Keith Sweaty created an original track for the NAMM Foundation’s 2016 PSA. The unscripted words and authentic reactions of the people in this piece convey the message that truly anyone can experience the power of making music if they...Just Play.
The NAMM Foundation advances active participation in music making across the lifespan by supporting scientific research, philanthropic giving and public service programs.
The Street Studio is a model for collaborative music-making that Found Sound Nation first pioneered at the Lucerne Music Festival in Switzerland in 2011. The premise is simple: transport the basic elements of a music studio to a public place, and make the studio open and accessible to everyone in the local community, musicians and non-musicians alike. Since then, it has traveled to 12 different countries including Russia, South Africa, Senegal, China and festivals including Harare International Festival of the Arts, Lincoln Center out of Doors, Big Ears (Knoxville, TN), and the Bay Chamber Festival in Maine.
Make Music New York is a live, free musical celebration on June 21, the longest day of the year, with over 1,200 concerts on streets, sidewalks, and parks across the five boroughs. From 10 in the morning to 10 at night, musicians of all ages, creeds, and musical persuasions – from hip hop to opera, Latin jazz to punk rock – perform on streets, sidewalks, stoops, plazas, cemeteries, parks and gardens. From high school bands to marquee names, MMNY is open to anyone who wants to take part, enjoyed by everyone who wants to attend.
