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.
