In May 2017 the world of electronic music was shaken by the unexpected passing of Marcus Intalex. Following his death, his friends, family and Nick Sinna set up the Marcus Intalex Music Foundation (not for profit) to inspire, educate and engage with budding musicians in and around Manchester.
Applications are now open for the first ever “WK:END”of free workshops in Manchester aimed at developing bright, new musical talent. Giving you the chance to rub shoulders with some of the best artists that are shaping contemporary electronic music, developing your skills, exploring new techniques and gaining the right knowledge to further your career in the industry.
From taster sessions in music production, masterclasses in beat making, DJ workshops delivered by seasoned experts and more; the Marcus Intalex Music Foundation will host and facilitate a programme that encourages participants to immerse themselves in everything they love about music and the artists they admire.
Some of the artists and workshop guests include: dBridge, Dub Phizix, Jenna G, Zed Bias, Swing Ting, Meat Free and many more.
To be considered, you’ll need to complete a short questionnaire highlighting your interests and skills, as well as giving us a bit more information about yourself and why you want to take part. You’ll also be given the opportunity to share some of your work with us; this could be your own tracks, a DJ mix, or anything that indicates which aspect of music you’re involved with.
Selected WK:END participants will receive the following:
- One-to-one support from established artists
- Access to relevant music software and hardware
- Workshops that will develop skills both in and out of the studio
- Free passes to a series of events during the weekend, held on February 22-24th and featuring some of the most respected names in electronic music, many of whom were Marcus’ friends, collaborators and contemporaries
Applicants must be aged +18 years.
