Wow, Austin, thank you! We’re still catching our breath after two jam-packed days celebrating with the community at the SoundCloud Creator Clubhouse.
We kicked off by welcoming Tumblr and SoundCloud community members to a joint meetup. We hosted performances by established and emerging SoundCloud artists and podcasters.
And Snoop Lion even dropped by to premiere his new film, Birds of a Feather, about his collaboration with Polish pop star Iza Lach. Snoop and Iza started making music together after he came across her tunes on SoundCloud; less than a year later, they’d co-produced 160 songs.
SoundCloud Pro user singer-songwriter Luke Sital-Singh took to the mic at the SoundCloud/Tumblr community meetup.
Mitzi’s smooth electro disco was a perfect accompaniment to the lakeside sunset.
While violin riffs by Barnaby Saints added unique flavour to the Grammy Amplifier Showcase.
We had a packed house at 4 PM for Red Bull Sound Select pick Cherub, with a unique, stripped-back take on their usual electro-pop sound.
There were live comedy performances, featuring Chris Hardwick of The Nerdist who spoke with Rooster Teeth as well as Earwolf, creators and producers of hilarious comedy shows.
The line was around the block to catch Island Def Jam’s The-Dream, while Usher and Snoop Lion watched from the decks.
SoundCloud’s CTO Eric Wahlforss announced the launch of our new Pro accounts. Afterwards, he talked all about it with SoundCloud Chicago Hero Jaime Black.
Thanks to Feedmagnet, we were able to keep up with all the #creatorclubhouse buzz.
We were also excited for everyone to experience our collaborations with local artists, who experimented with sound as a design tool.
Creator Clubhouse art directors Public School created a living waveform from 5000 feet of paracord.
And Houndstooth Studio built a lighting installation that responded to the sound system and a midi controller in the crowd.
Big thanks goes out to all of our partners who worked with us to make the Clubhouse Austin’s unofficial creative hub for two days last week. But our biggest thanks goes out to you, the community, for creating so much that’s worth celebrating. We loved meeting all of you who made it down to the Clubhouse last week. Hope to see even more of you in Austin next year!
