After working closely with Staten Island Arts for the past year, Projectivity has received a generous grant from NeOn Arts, a program of the NYC Department of Probation in partnership with Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute. Projectivity will be offering a FREE music program taking place at the SI Makerspace beginning August 13th, 2014.  Engineering Your Sound is a 12-week beginner-level music program.  Participants in the course will learn different capabilities of computer recording software for the purpose of producing music and recording vocals. The course is designed around Apple’s Logic software and other recording technology.   During the course, enrollees will work with each other to:

- Understand some of the different software available for recording and creating your own music
– Learn the basic components of a song and how to create your own original content.
– Hear from guest speakers from different aspects of the music industry (performers, producers, engineers, record label owners, A&Rs, radio hosts and more)
– Collaborate with professional musicians and fellow participants to produce a CD, to be debuted at an album release party featuring live performances.

Sticky Situation – 2014

Check the video recap of Ink Monstr’s Sticky Situation NYC 2014 – our highly acclaimed, one-of-a-kind sticker art exhibit and competition in Staten Island! We teamed up with Ink Monstr once again to completely transform Artist Alley into the ultimate NY street-art gallery space. This single night art exhibition was open to the public with FREE entry, artistic branding activations, live music, and fierce competition.

Projectivity had the privilege helping sponsor this great event.  With lots of local artists and musicians, it was a great time for the whole NYC community, specifically Staten Island.   Check out the recap video and be on the lookout for this event coming to your town.
