OneBeat: Mixtape 2012

Language: “The 2012 Mixtape distills the entire month of collaboration during OneBeat 2012, highlighting Fellows’ mobile studio sessions, recordings from Honey Jar and Studio G in New York City, workshops with youth at Jefferson Center’s Music Lab and the YMCA in Charleston, street studios in Roanoke, VA, and recordings from the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida.

“During the residency, the fellows formed improvised ensembles that reinvented and arranged traditional tunes, composed original work, and recorded in the state-of-the-art OneBeat mobile studio. Following the residency, while on tour, the Fellows also collaborated with local artists, designed free public music-making events, and led workshops and recording sessions with youth. Featuring innovative young musicians from around the world, the 2012 OneBeat Mixtape reveals a powerful vision of ‘world music’ and illustrates the versatility and musical diversity of the fellows.”
