Applications for the Recording Artist Residency will open again in May 2023.

The mission of the residency is to contribute to the development of New Orleans’ recording artists by providing project management support, a recording studio, an engineer, and workshops on music and music business as artists create an original project.

Six artists per year are selected to create an EP; receive project management support, professional portraits, a live studio performance video; and to be featured in the annual showcase concert.

Additional development opportunities include:

– Vocal coaching
– Performance coaching
– Music theory
– Digital audio production
– Workshops on album design, management, and promotion

All Material Institute programs are cost-free.
