Red Bull Music Academy



Red Bull Music Academy : Tokyo

October - November 2011

We hope all of you out there reading Dialogue Inc on the interwebs like wings. For 2011, we've entered into a strategic partnership with Red Bull, the giver of wings, to help them organize various events and workshops, mainly in the city of Chicago, but here and there, on a broader scale. Our first order of duty is with the Red Bull Music Academy. If you're not familiar with the Academy, it's a yearly summit held in a different worldly locale—past Academies have taken place in London, Toronto and Sao Paulo—that gathers like-minded musicians, producers and DJs for artist interviews, production workshops, DJ sessions, radio broadcasts and a healthy amount of letting loose (once the work is done, of course). 

Basically, it's an invaluable opportunity for music types on the come-up to mingle with others just like them, all the while spending face-to-face time with artists who have cracked through and established themselves. It's a meeting of the minds if you will. Where does Dialogue Inc fit in to all this? Thanks to our work with DJs and artists here in Chicago, but also around the world, RBMA has tapped us to help with their application drive; to get all you slacker ass (but also talented) creatives out there to capitalize on a genuine career starter and a ridiculous good time.

Here's a hilarious example of what you can witness at the Academy:




And that's just Kenny Dixon. Past lecturers also include ?uestlove, Arthur Baker, Bob Moog, Carl Craig, Danny Krivit, Henrik Schwarz, James Holden, Kode9, M.I.A., Norman Jay, Peter Hook, Roots Manuva, Sly and Robbie, Tony Allen and Kompakt's Wolfgang Voigt. Hows that for an A-Z of our industry?

The application is a telling adventure in and of itself. It really challenges to dig deep to define who you are as an artist, whether it be as a DJ, producer or media person. And, as a bonus for taking the time, we keep the dialogue open, even if you don't make it into the academy. When Red Bull does events in your town, you'll be the first to know and the first to be tapped for getting involved. When all is said and done, if you make the commitment, we do to. Win Win everybody!

Here's a bit more about the process:
