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.

February’s MSP Audio Geeks meetup is on Wednesday, February 22nd from 7-9pm. Levi Stugelmeyer of Summer Winter Studios will be our host. We are excited for this joint outing with the Mpls.-St. Paul Studio Nerds group, which is moderated by Gregg Ward.

Levi John Stugelmeyer is a drummer, producer and studio owner. He is the touring drummer for Nashville based artist Caitlyn Smith and the owner of Summer – Winter – Studios in Saint Paul, MN.

Summer – Winter – Studios is a compound based in the old offices of the King Koil mattress factory. It consists of a professional recording studio, rehearsal studio, and a 1,000 square foot gallery/performance space. It is also host to multiple photographers, artists, and musicians.

Gregg Ward is a songwriter, musician, and engineer residing in St. Paul, MN. He is the curator of the MSP Studio Nerds Facebook Group and a mastering engineer at Studio Arcade Mastering. Some of the things he is currently thinking about are where vintage and new merge, future potential and encouraging artists, cultivating creative catalysts in the studio, writing a better pop song and finding a good red wine.

In partnership with Summer Winter Studios, we are trying something new we’re calling the Free Trade Fix Table.

  • Do you have gear that works great but you never use and would like to see it put to use?
  • Do you have gear that just doesn’t work right and know you will never get around to fixing?
  • Have something that you would like to trade for another piece of gear?
  • Do you have strong fixit skills and want to save some money with your time?

In the spirit of coming together and sharing in community, stop by the Free Trade Fix table and check it out. Feel free to take or donate something. Help yourself and someone else.
