Apply to Red Bull Music Academy 2011

Red Bull Music Academy have begun taking applications for their 2011 event, taking place in Tokyo in October and November!!

¨Now in its 13th edition, RBMA is a program that helps fledgling musicians get on top of their game. Participants go through two weeks of workshops and lectures, and get the chance to play at clubs in whatever city hosts the academy that year, often alongside well-known artists. Last year's event in London featured speakers like Kenny Dixon Junior (AKA Moodymann), Steve Reich, Mark Ronson, and Terre Thaemlitz (AKA DJ Sprinkles), and past alumni of the academy include Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke.

This year's event takes place in two rounds: one from October 23rd to November 4th, the other from November 13th to the 25th. Candidates will be reviewed by a jury of label managers, music journalists and "Academy team members," and 60 participants will be selected in total (30 for each round). The academy is looking for styles ranging "from singer-songwriters to DIY synth designers and orchestral composers or digital beat makers." Applications will be accepted until April 4th.
