Join us on Wedneday, June 14th at NY Studio Factory for this one-time special event with Yamaha.
Yamaha product demonstrator Rich Fabrizio will lead an interactive workshop of Yamaha Synthesizers including MONTAGE, MOXF, MX and reface.
Newly announced at NAMM 2016, the latest flagship synthesizer, the Yamaha MONTAGE music synthesizer features sophisticated dynamic control, massive sound creation and a streamlined user interface.
The Motion Control Synthesis Engine unifies and controls two iconic Sound Engines: AWM2 (high-quality waveform and subtractive synthesis) and FM-X (modern, pure Frequency Modulation synthesis). These two engines can be zoned or layered across eight parts in a single MONTAGE Performance. Interact with MONTAGE Performances using Motion Control: a programmable control matrix for creating deep, dynamic and incredibly expressive sound. With Motion Control, you can create new sounds not possible on previous hardware synthesizers.
Also featured will be the MOXF music production synthesizer, the MX music synthesizer and the reface line of mobile mini keyboards.
It's that simple.

Check out The Submarine Studio at NYSF featured in SonicScoop.com today!
Dan Walker's background is what gave him the experience needed to open his own studio. From touring regularly with the art punk band The Death Set and putting out club records under various aliases, Dan understands what bands need when recording and tracking a record, and his active roles in US and UK Breakbeat and Electro House scenes keeps his ear in tune for production and mixing.
"Having this network from touring and putting out records, meeting labels and artists consistently for 10+ years prior has set up a trend for the clientele that make their way to this studio," Dan says. "At The Submarine, we cater to the indie rock, garage, punk bands, hip hop, RnB, pop, singer/songwriter, electronica, techno, and everything else in between. The demographic across the board leans more toward the leftfield and I’ve found myself working with some amazing and unique artists both signed and unsigned over the years."
If you're looking for work space or audio studio space, NY Studio Factory can help you get your Brooklyn studio set up and established. NYSF provides all-inclusive, acoustically treated studio space for audio professionals and more.
And we support our members! If you're interested in renting an engineering room for the day or have tracks to mix or vocals and live recording to finish, please do reach out to Dan at The Submarine Studio.
Chowaniec settled in Bushwick with a studio at New York Studio Factory. “You don’t need a studio to make art,” she says. “But to have a ‘room of one’s own’—I heart Virginia Woolf—is critical to me. My studio here is my sanctuary.”
In her studio, Chowaniec creates paintings, drawings, and sculptural projects with new media extensions, including 3D printing and virtual reality. “My art practice starts with collecting objects and memories from my immediate environment, a shared landscape that we connect with daily. I work in hybrid media, traditional and new, with the conscious goal of creative multiple access points for view[er] engagement. The democratization of access to art is critical to my vision.”
And in so many ways, that too is what Chowaniec loves about Bushwick: the opportunities that come with alternative spaces.

Join us for this special event in Bushwick during Armory Arts Week.
NYSF and Andy P. Smith are excited to present Alex Chowaniec: Gloria Patria (Burnt Eclipse), a solo pop-up installation, with musical performance by Ev, during Armory Arts Week, in Bushwick.
Chowaniec's Gloria Patria (Burnt Eclipse) installation is realized through progressive light, as darkness falls at sunset. The image comes to you slowly; in darkness there is discovery.
The democratization of access to art is critical. Chowaniec’s goal is to expand how we achieve this, working in hybrid media (traditional and new) with the conscious goal of creating multiple access points for viewer engagement. Alternative spaces provide a vehicle to change the way we make art, engage with art and reach out to community through flexible sites for exhibition, education and organizing.

Thanks, Sonic Scoop!
We're thrilled to announce a new partnership between New York Studio Factory and our neighbors at Kings County Brewers Collective.

Sammy Needlz is a producer, radio show host, and DJ who is based in Brooklyn while playing clubs all over New York City and beyond, often traveling to Europe and Asia for gigs.
I caught up with him at his studio at NY Studio Factory in Bushwick right after his return from Germany and just a couple days before he was flying to France for another round of gigs.
For someone who spent the last two weeks DJing all-night parties in Berlin, Needlz didn’t seem all that jetlagged when we met.
“I drink a lot of coffee,” he says. “I’m highly caffeinated at all times.”
Make 2017 your year. Let us help!
Starting now, though January, any new members who take a workspace at NY Studio Factory receive a $300 discount on your first month. It's that simple! Sign up before January 31st and get the discount.
