“SongSpaces” at St Paul’s are managed by the Music Development Office.
They are comprised of 2 x purpose-built songwriting rooms that help bring the creative process to the Creative Centre.
Each SongSpace room enables musicians, music engineers and producers to work on collaborative projects in an inspiring, unique and comfortable environment.
Projects that take place in the rooms should include plans for artists to collaborate other artists and/or music engineers and producers on new material. As a Creative Centre, we envision these rooms as a way to spark new ideas, new partnerships, new ways of approaching your music.
SongSpace rooms are not designed as fully kitted recording studios, nor are they rehearsal rooms for existing material. They provide a unique place for you to work together on writing with other like-minded creatives.
