MUSIC + PRODUCTION STUDIO
At madelife we value the importance of having an open creative space for artists to work, and provide that through our recording studio, production studio, and workshop space. These spaces are always open for use by artists who are part of the Creative Accelerator program, as well as interns, but can also be rented by third parties.
