Encouraging people from across Manchester to get creative and come together during these unprecedented times is something we at Finest believe in, and we couldn’t be more excited for this one.

Spirit Studios, Manchester’s iconic music production school, is kicking off a full year of special events with their very first social distancing special – a mass livestream teaching you how to create music from everyday objects!

The year-long series of events is to be centred around creating, making and curating, celebrating Spirit Studios’ 40th anniversary.

An integral part of Manchester’s heritage, Manchester’s Spirit Studios helped produce some of the best of British music, including legendary names The Stone Roses, 808 State, The Smiths and the Happy Mondays.

The first event to celebrate its anniversary will take place on Thursday 2nd April will be an Instagram livestream Sound Capture event, where the guys will create a series of tracks using everyday household items.

Viewers will get the chance to see the Spirit Studios facilities and witness their expertise with music producers coming together to capture, create and manipulate sounds hidden within everyday objects (think glass bottles, tins, bins, frying pans and even spaghetti apparently!)

Complemented by an electro-acoustic sound-making Koma Elektronik Field Kit, contact microphones, pick-up coils, wires and random homemade instruments to curate abstract sounds and sequences. This one is set to be super interesting. Make sure you tune in!
