The new studio welcomes aspiring or experienced podcasters, musicians and audio creators
Ann Arbor District Library has launched a new service called Fifth Avenue Studios to support local podcasters, musicians and audio creators. AADL has previously launched Fifth Avenue Press to help local authors develop and market their books, and have now branched out into audio creation within the community.
AADL is accepting proposals from beginner or experienced podcasters who want to create something new, or need help improving the quality of an existing podcast. Local bands, musicians and artists looking to record, produce, and release their work are also welcome in the studio, along with audio creators with an idea that doesn’t quite fit into the podcast or music category.
For those interested in beginning or developing a podcast, AADL wants to help produce podcasts for all audiences, across multiple genres, and formats, on all kinds of topics, with a preference for locally-focused content exploring the culture, experiences, interests, and history of the Ann Arbor area. Creators must reside in Washtenaw County to participate. Podcasts must remain ad-free while released through Fifth Avenue Studios.
For local musicians, Fifth Avenue Studios can help local bands and musicians record, produce, and release work digitally and in physical formats. It can be a band or musician’s first public release, or their tenth, depending on the project and how the library can help. Artists must reside in Washtenaw County to participate.
AADL also accepts proposals for a radio play, audio screenplay, audiobook, walking tour or other audio project. They can offer studio recording, editing, audio production and more.
AADL will review all proposals and determine which projects move forward.
Project proposals can be submitted here, along with audio samples to provide background for your intended work. For questions about potential projects, please contact Fifth Avenue Studios at email@example.com or visit the Fifth Avenue Studios website.
