We are converting a 2,000 square foot 1930s traditional double-shotgun house located within the Ninth Ward of New Orleans into a space that members of the community can use for collaborative and creative projects.
The final room featured in the video will be available for musicians to practice, record, and give lessons. Your contributions will go directly towards creating a sound proof environment in this room that will maximize artist’s sound quality while remaining respectful to our neighbors. Funds generated through Kickstarter will be used to purchase DB Block and Quiet Rock which are the necessary materials to meet this goal in this specific space.
This sound proof music room is one facet of The Big House Projects collaborative mission. The mission of this emerging organization will be a multi-use space that engages the surrounding community. Uses include, but are not limited to, a culinary art space, music performance and instruction space, and community meeting space. The project will create a malleable open forum with those pursing similar community building endeavors.
