Who We Are.
The Forest Sounds is a mobile renewable project which hosts free music production workshops for women, and others, under-represented in the music production industry, with your help.
My name is Ellese and I am a disabled single mother of two, and an unpaid artist. I wanted to get my music heard so i tried to turn my hand to music production with the bit of equipment i had. I soon learned how difficult this was. I tried my best, and even incorporated the various noises my children made as sound effects... but really, music production is hard.
We Can Produce Music Too!
Only 2% of music producers are women. Ethnic Minorities, Gender conforming people and people with a disability are also severely under-represented in the music production industry.
So we came up with The Forest Sounds.
How We Will Do IT!
We will be converting an energy renewable vehicle into a mobile music studio and travelling around London, and beyond, to give everyone the opportunity to make music work for them. We will head into the dangerous depths of the woodlands to deliver workshops to those under-represented in the music industry. We have partnered up with Education and Bass, Drake Music and Omni to deliver these free workshops.
All money raised will got towards the equipment, needed to do this. And the occasional pack of biscuits.
