Maskeliade Street Studio is a unique social project that took place at several major festivals. The meaning of the street studio is to create music with random passersby on the spot by using acoustic instruments and voices. Anyone can join, play an instrument or take the microphone to sing or read whatever he or she wants. Maskeliade, together with the other musicians, is collecting these samples and sound pieces on the fly and combine them. Participants are immediately engaged in the experience, thus becoming artists themselves. After the festivals, digital albums are released and sent to all the participants of the street studios.
Anton also held a workshop in the Nikola-Lenivets art park where he coached 6 people for the upcoming Moscow City Day street studio. For more information and photos check facebook page.
