Evan Selection Panel announced for SoundCloud Fellowship

One of our favorite things here at SoundCloud is working with folks who are experienced, knowledgeable and passionate about the world of sound. Through our Fellowship program, we’re hoping to support some truly mind-blowing audio projects, so it seems only right that we ask true experts in the community to help us choose this year’s Fellows.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce the panel of judges who will help choose our 2012 Fellowships!

We’ve also had some questions regarding what type of support the fellowship program will provide. We value your time, effort, and experience as creators and want to help you succeed however we can. In addition to the support of our amazing community, the program will also offer some financial support (up to $5,000). You can find more information about all of this in the project-submission guide.

    In June Jawitz Properties sold an apartment of 147m in the historic headquarters of Barclays Bank at 87 Commissioner Street for a cool R1,15m!Monster Casque loft-style developments are comparatively more reasonable than the competition from the northern suburbs tempting the trendy set back to the city.
    Then there is theEscompte Monster Beats Dr Dre: opened with Arts on Main. What was originally a complex of five out-of-commission warehouses is now home to 28 sectional title studios and offices. Even the traditionally industrial south eastern node of the city is rejuvenating. Led by Jonathan Liebmann’s ‘Propertuity’ who is turning Fox Street, bordered by Main, Berea and Kruger, into a pulsating hub to live, work and play for artists, designers and other creative Pas Cher Monster Beats Dre.
    And so there’s Main Street Life, a five-storey apartment building of 194 residential units, restaurants, a cinema, a theatre, a hotel and more. All very trendy and pulsing with life and activity. Liebmann is also redeveloping three other buildings in the precinct bringing the redevelopment value up to R100 million!
