Join the 48 Hour Band Project

Screen Shot 2014-01-28 at 9.29.58 PMWant to make some great music extremely quickly with strangers?

Writing Programs’ 48 Hour Magazine Project is looking for musicians interested in taking part in a 48 hour music experiment to coincide with this year’s magazine. The project will involve piecing together groups of musicians into temporary bands that will last for only a single weekend.

At noon on Friday, February 21, we will announce the magazine’s theme and the groups of musicians. Bands will be asked to write a song of thematic connection to this year’s theme. Each band will also choose a song to cover from a list of thematically related tunes. The weekend will conclude with festival of sorts on Sunday, February 23, featuring the stage debut and final performance of each 48 Hour band.

If interested, please complete this form. Musicians of all instruments and experience levels welcome!
