Anton Maskeliade participates in the program as organizer and musician.
Maskeliade Street Studio is an accessible interactive music project that takes place at festivals and parks. The meaning of the street studio is to create music with random passersby on the spot by using acoustic instruments and voices. Anyone can join, play an instrument or take the microphone to sing or read whatever they want. Maskeliade, together with the other musicians, is collecting these samples and sound pieces on the fly and combine them. Participants are immediately engaged in the experience, thus becoming artists themselves. After the festivals, digital albums are released and sent to all the participants of the street studios.
