Material Institute

The Embassy
//Music Studio

The Embassy is a community of recording artists, musicians, producers, and engineers. We support artists in developing their craft by providing access to a recording studio and focused workshops.

Every year, we host an open call and award selected artists with studio time. These emerging artists work one-on-one with an engineer to record an album or EP of their material, attend music business workshops, receive professional portraits, and perform at music showcases.

Sundays at the studio are reserved for formerly incarcerated / court-system involved artists. These resident artists receive additional support with education, child care, employment and court dates.
