Applications to the 2023 Recording Artist Residency are now closed. Applications will open again in May 2024.
The Recording Artist Residency is a ten-month residency designed to further the development of New Orleans’ recording artists.
Six artists per year are selected to receive project management support, studio time with a professional engineer to complete an EP (up to six tracks), artist portraits, music industry workshops, a live studio performance video, and a feature in our annual showcase concert. Additional development opportunities include vocal and performance coaching.
All Material Institute programs are cost-free. The music you create at Material Institute belongs to you.
