Converse is at it again. Yesterday the brand launched its new campaign called, Converse Rubber Tracks program. The campaign is aimed at opening/ activating the doors to some of the world’s greatest recording studios i.e. giving you, yes you musician-in-the-making, the opportunity of a life time. Do you have material written? Do you need studio time? Well here’s your shot.
Take a look at the studios listed below. Then you will need to register on the site, select your top three choices and submit that along with a biography, written or video (DO VIDEO, IT’S JUST THAT MUCH BETTER). Registrations opened yesterday and close on the 24th of June. If you’re chosen, you’ll be notified in July. From there you will go into studio planning and sorting out all the necessary details, before jetting off in September, to record your music. Interested? Hell I would be… and you will be convinced after you see this list of studios:
Abbey Road Studios in London, England;
Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, California;
Hansa Tonstudio in Berlin, Germany;
Tuff Gong in Kingston, Jamaica;
Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik, Iceland;
The Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, Canada;
Avast Recording Co. in Seattle, Washington;
Stankonia in Atlanta, Georgia;
Studios 301 in Sydney, Australia;
Toca do Bandido in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil;
The original brick-and-mortar Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn, New York, which opened four years ago;
The second permanent Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Boston, Massachusetts, slated to open this summer.
This idea came about from the brand’s ongoing desire to give back to the music community, and what better way than to offer them the chance to record music in not just any old studio but these incredible studios listed above.
Nothing wrong with this!
