Tonight, The Red Bull Music Academy presents Egyptrixx and Martyn at the S.A.T starting with a lecture at 7pm, and then music till 2:00am.
In support of this year’s Academy, Dutch electronic producer Martyn (Brainfeeder/3024) and Toronto’s own celestial beat-maker, Egyptrixx (Night Slugs/Ramp Recordings), will be co-heading a national tour with Mutek. The tour highlights the academy to potential applicants through Red Bull Music Academy Session lectures, Q&A and concert series. Preceding each show is an intimate look at the Academy and its application process hosted by mymanhenri. Potential applicants in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal will get a taste of the Red Bull Music Academy, with an exclusive Red Bull Music Academy Session Lecture with Egyptrixx and Martyn.
The Red Bull Music Academy has travelled around the world, with previous stops including Berlin, Toronto, London, Madrid, Melbourne, and Cape Town. The Academy’s 2012 edition will be held in New York City. The Red Bull Music Academy is an international workshop that was founded in 1998, and touches down in a different city each year. Over two week 'terms', some of the finest purveyors of rhythm and sound from all over the world gather between the Academy's walls. Two groups of successful applicants, themselves representing a diverse range of music styles and methodologies, attend lectures by musical pioneers, and work on their own tunes in custom-built studios. By night, they have the chance to perform in some of the host city's most iconic clubs and concert halls.
Interested producers, musicians, DJs, instrumentalists, and vocalists can download an application form from the Academy website from February 2, 2012 and send it off with a selection of their tunes by April 2, 2012.
