The Boom Room Music Church
Create | Collaborate | Connect
The Boom Room Music Church Project is a free and open collaborative songwriting workshop held at The Boom Room, a recording studio in Philadelphia. Since October 2011, Music Church has invited a dedicated community of vocalists and instrumentalists to join in a long-term songwriting and production process where spontaneous improvisations (“jam sessions”) are later arranged to become studio quality records to be released and distributed internationally via Fishtown Records.
This is a free opportunity for emerging musicians to meet and develop their ideas while connecting with their community. The goal is to create fresh musical ideas while developing listening and communication skills among a diverse community of musicians. For each new song that is created through the workshop, the participating musicians collectively share in their deserved copyrights and publishing royalties for these songs created through this experimental project. During many of the live improv sessions, Music Church also often hosts a community of aerial acrobats who gracefully perform above the band on aerial silks suspended from the ceiling of The Boom Room Studio. Listen to the before and after of each song below to hear the song idea transform from a loose improvisation among friends and strangers, into a finished, workshopped studio song.
