The followint studios are participating: ABBEY ROAD (LONDON), SUNSET SOUND (L.A.), HANSA TONSTUDIO (BERLIN), TUFF GONG (KINGSTON), GREENHOUSE STUDIOS (REYKJAVIK, ICELAND), THE WAREHOUSE (VANCOUVER), AVAST RECORDING CO. (SEATTLE), STANKONIA (ATLANTIA), STUDIOS 301 (SYDNEY), TOCA DO BANDIDO (RIO DE JANEIRO), the original brick-and-mortar CONVERSE RUBBER TRACKS (BROOKLYN), and the second permanent CONVERSE RUBBER TRACKS (BOSTON), slated to open this summer.
“Since we opened our first permanent CONVERSE RUBBER TRACKS studio in BROOKLYN four years ago, we’ve had aspirations to elevate this program even further, hoping to extend this opportunity to artists across the globe,” said CONVERSE GLOBAL MUSIC Marketing Director JED LEWIS. “With this new CONVERSE RUBBER TRACKS program, we will unlock the doors to some of the greatest recording studios in music history and we’re ecstatic to offer this extraordinary experience to emerging artists worldwide. As a brand so deeply rooted in the next generation of creative spirits, we’re eager to make history while inspiring creativity and self-expression among music communities worldwide.”
CONVERSE is set to offer a total of 84 recording sessions at 12 different studios within the two-week time frame. Selected artists will have the opportunity to work with world-renowned producers and sound engineers, while being given access to industry-leading technology in studios that have hosted some of the most celebrated acts in music history. At the end of their studio time, the artists retain all of the rights to their own music.
