Wired For Sound Brings Mobile Recording Studio To Southern African Artists
Wired For Sound is a mobile recording studio "working with community radio and musicians throughout Southern Africa." Though much is documentary, the project is also meant to help young artists and to ultimately lead to the development of recording studios in community radio stations. Wired For sound has an album out as well that's part of a larger multimedia project.
Wired For Sound is a really awesome sounding project that centers around a:
"mobile 4×4 recording studio, capable of exploring even the most isolated regions of the project’s 2013 destination, Mozambique. The mobile studio is configured to run off a solar panel and battery system, allowing the team unrestricted access to musicians who are not able to travel. Recording locations are then chosen according to acoustic quality, aesthetic appeal and cultural relevance."
