‘Somewhere_to’, the national charity organisation supported by Channel 4 and the Arts Council has linked up with SSR.
‘Somewhere_to' has approached companies across the city to pledge physical space to the capital’s young people where they can develop their creative talents and ideas.
SSR was asked to participate by giving access to our studios to bands and artists looking to record their music. We are delighted to be able to do this, as in line with our mission, SSR is committed to making its contribution to the nurturing of talent and music. Through the partnership SSR students will be working with new unsigned acts from the ‘Somewhere_to’ scheme by engineering and producing their music. Being able to access professional recording environments will provide an experience well beyond the reach of many musicians.
This collaboration will also provide a wealth of real world experience for SSR students looking to develop their professional expertise and profile. SSR student Dan Smith is already working with two new musicians thanks to the project.
SSR London Head of Audio Jonathan Espinosa:“This is a fantastic opportunity to support London’s creative talent in 2012. Since our beginnings in 1980, SSR’s core mission has been to encourage those who have a passion for music and creativity. SSR has a great history of supporting talented individuals so this project gives us a perfect opportunity to make our contribution to the community.”
SSR remains committed to providing the best possible learning platforms for our students and this project allows us to facilitate some of London’s creativity whilst also paving the way for our next generation of producers and engineers.
