ASSEMBLE SOUND
RESIDENCY

The ideal candidate is focused full-time on their craft, has demonstrated experience, and has a vision for their own progress.

ARTIST RESIDENTS ARE PROVIDED:

1.

Free 24/7 access to Assemble Sound recording studios and rehearsal space

2.

Hands-on critique and professional development with other artist residents and Assemble Sound staff

3.

Access to exclusive resident programming led by industry professionals


The Purpose


We believe that the most valuable thing an artist can do for their work and career is find and participate in constructive creative communities. Assemble Sound has always tried to facilitate that in our studio space and our primary vehicle for doing so is our artist residency program. Besides access to the studios, the program aims to give residents access to more people, knowledge, and resources that they can leverage to become better artists and music business owners. Our hope is that artist residents leave the program with a lot of music created, a deeper understanding of their work, and more familiarity with the broader music industry.


The Goals


To work with world class artists who are motivated to take their craft to the next level

To cultivate a studio space that is both musically and culturally diverse

To connect great songs with commercial sync opportunities to the benefit of artists, Assemble, and clients alike


Resident Tracks


1. ARTISTS - Performing artists (singers, rappers, etc) who perform live and release songs

2. PRODUCERS - Those who work with artists and songwriters to make music and arrange songs

3. SONGWRITERS - People who write songs for themselves and other artists
