Musicians in Residence
Globe Aroma is currently developing a new music program for Musicians in Residence!
The program aims to connect, bring together, and provide opportunities for musicians with a newcomer’s background who reside in Belgium.
Professional musicians who were active in their homelands and who wish to resume their practice and/or career in Belgium.
Applicants are eligible to apply for the residency if:
– They are over the age of 18 years old
– They reside in Belgium
– They have a newcomer’s background
– They are pursuing a career in music (main or side profession)
The project focuses on individual paths by fostering talent, offering resources, and creating a supportive environment for the participating artists to grow and thrive.
Musicians in residence are offered resources such as infrastructure, tools, access to technique development, and access to a newer and wider network.
Infrastructure is offered through access to the Music Room at Globe Aroma: This space will mainly be used for rehearsals and music group gatherings, one-on-one meetings between musicians and mentors, workshops and info sessions…
The co-working space at Globe Aroma is used for networking and building connections with other artists and professionals.
The tools and material that are provided range from simple Jack cables and converters to small instruments and musical equipment: Anything contributes to supporting the creative process and the creation of the best musical outcome possible.
Technique development is an essential part of the project and is provided through continuous workshops and mentorship. The workshops are planned depending on the needs of the participating musicians, such as writing, recording, mixing, mastering, album art, label outreach, social media marketing, PR planning… Mentors with various specialties will lead workshops and guide the participants when needed.
Applicants are advised to send a text (1 page or less) explaining why they would like to participate in the program, what their aspirations are in the music field, along with a preliminary timeline for their musical project. In addition to the text, applicants are encouraged to send a video or sound recording of their musical project (2 tracks minimum). It is also advised for the applicants to include as much supporting material as possible (Demos, Videos, Photos, Links, Collaborations…).
Selected candidates (individual musicians and/or groups) will be the Musicians in Residence at Globe Aroma for a minimum period of 6 months.
Globe Aroma is open every day of the week. Artists are welcome daily in our coworking space. Musicians who are on a path with Globe Aroma have access to the rehearsal room following the Globe Aroma reservation system.
Are you, or is someone you know, a musician interested in our project? All you have to do is send an email to email@example.com, give us a call at Globe Aroma or just pay us a visit any day of the week. We would love to know what you are working on as a musician and what your future plans are!
