The travelling Red Bull music academy arrived in Madrid this year after cancelling its Tokyo appearance because of the Fukushima incident. As always, it was a pleasure to visit the premises with the Red Bull Spain team. The place chosen to organise it all was the Matadero in Legazpi, the old slaughterhouse, a beautiful place…and a great, big open-space, where everything had to be organised from scratch. It’s amazing how they can organise all these temporary recording and production studios with such great acoustic quality. The recording studio was worth seeing, built within a bunker made with sandbags and the latest recording technology.
I put myself in the skin of the students and it must be amazing to live this experience with others from different parts of the world who share your interest and having the chance to chat with and learn from the greatest artists of the time.
