The July 2018 MSP Audio Geeks meetup is Tuesday, July 31 from 7-9pm at Runway Studios. Jason Miller is our host.

From the website:
In 1988, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis built a private recording studio called Flyte Tyme Studios where they recorded over a hundred gold and platinum albums with artists including Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, Boyz II Men, and many others before moving to Los Angeles in 2002. Thirty years after Flyte Tyme started, the facility is transforming into a multimedia studio complex open to the public called Runway Studios.

Runway offers no-compromise studios specifically designed for media freelancers. We have recording spaces and control rooms that are second to none and integrate seamlessly into the home studio workflow.

We believe that a vibrant, creative community thrives when artists are able to interact and connect with each other and we are excited to have musicians, photographers, producers, and videographers all working under one roof.

February’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is Wednesday, February 28th from 7-9pm at The Resonance Box.

From the website:
The Resonance Box is a small initiative with the intention of bringing focus to the world of auditory experiences. Hearing has not only been a way for us to enjoy beautiful music, but it has also played a key role in our survival as a species. Sound continues to stay an important aspect of our research into the unknown territories of the cosmos. We hope to bring attention to this wonderous sensory process and the exploration of it by human kind in different realms, from art, to science, to math and physics.

Aida Shahghasemi is a Minneapolis based vocalist and musician. She studied Psychology and Anthropology at University of Minnesota with a focus on the restrictions of the voices of female vocalists in Iran, where she was born and raised until the age of thirteen. She received her Masters degree from New York University in Art and Public Policy, exploring her interests in the intersection of art and socio-political movements. She has worked with different New York and Minnesota based social justice art organizations and has served as an assistant director at Hamline University’s Making Waves Social Justice Theatre Troupe. She is a recipient of 2017 McKnight music fellowship.
