Bsidesound is a rehearsal studio for solo electronic producers, DJ’s and bands. It exists to offer a collaborative and creative place to meet with other musicians to write, rehearse and record sounds. The new facility will include a large room for meetings and rehearsals equipped with a P.A, DJ decks and lounges, while the smaller studio rooms will be available for hire weekly, daily or by the hour – making it one of Sydney’s most affordable rehearsal spaces.
All the spaces can be hired on an hourly, daily or weekly basis, offering Sydney’s music community an affordable and accessible creative environment to get inspired, create new work and launch it.
Founder of Bsidesound, Luke Dal Santo, said that by cultivating emerging musicians, Bsidesound aims to contribute to the revitalization of Sydney’s dwindling live music scene.
“Bsidesound is more than just a rehearsal studio; it is a communal space that will allow creative minds from all walks of life to interact with like-minded people and create meaningful music.” Mr Dal Santo said.
“Creative collaboration is at heart of Bsidesound’s philosophy; we encourage music creation, collaboration and discovery by taking the individual music practice out of the bedroom and into a shared space.” Dal Santo added.
Bsidesound will also host monthly ‘Meet the Muso’ Q & A nights where members of Sydney’s music community can come together to share their stories and learn from each other’s experiences.
“I really want to focus on sharing the process of creative collaboration. Bsidesound offers an alternative to experiencing music in a club or pub environment through our ‘Meet the Muso’ Q and A nights where producers, songwriters, bands and solo artists can showcase their project and share their insight into its creation with an intimate live event.” Mr Dal Santo said
Founder, Luke Dal Santo has a strong background in music production and songwriting, having studied composition and production at the Australian Institute of Music (AIM). Now working as a producer and DJ, Dal Santo has worked with multiple vocalists to turn their ideas into finished radio tracks across the genres of pop, ambient, electronic and dance.Having also worked on youth theatre productions at Sydney’s esteemed, Belvoir Theatre and the Ashfeild youth theatre, Dal Santo is eager to nurture his relationship with Sydney’s theatre community by also offering the rehearsal space to theatre groups and performers.
