To find out more The artistic residency project conceived by Saint Louis is rooted in a careful observation of the evolution of the musical world in recent years, of the professional figures that are evolving and of the shortcomings that have emerged in the new musical phenomena .

The aim of the project is to train a new class of authors who can also become a new artistic movement in the Italian panorama, precisely through the close contact and synergies that can be created throughout the period of stay between the various subjects involved.

Song Writing Camp the Saint Louis has always been attentive to the news of the sector and has always supported ambitious projects by emerging artists, precisely by its nature as an A.F.A.M. recognized by the Miur. The Songwriting Camp has as its users the Italian songwriters, the songwriters but also the singers interpreters and the bands in support of them.

11 artists under 35 will be involved in the residence, who will collaborate in the creation of unreleased songs to be presented to producers and publishers and to an audience of experts in the sector. An opportunity to make yourself known nationally and relate to industry experts and other authors, work with them and create a hotbed of talents that can become a reference for Italian composer's music. In fact, the project foresees the residence of 6 songwriters, of which 2 songwriters, selected through a national call, who will make use of the training of some of the most prepared teachers of composition, electronic music, professional songwriters and sound technicians for the realization and refinement of a piece that will then be interpreted by 4 of the best singers of Saint Louis, selected on the basis of: vocality, timbre, style and ability to stand on stage, but also on the basis of the characteristics of the author who can choose his favorite singer among those selected.

Song Writing Camp alongside these 10 artists (4 songwriters, two songwriters and 4 singers performers) will be selected a band of 5 musicians who will accompany the singers / songwriters throughout the residency and in the final performances (concert and showcase). The band will consist of piano and keyboards, bass, drums and guitar, electronic producer and any other musicians who may be used for the final realization.

The residency includes a training period with songwriter at fama, composers and authors who will alternate with individual and group lessons, master classes and workshops in support of new talents in order to improve the product, make it attractive on a professional level and in some cases adapt and sew it on the singer / performer, thus creating a ad hoc project for each singer participating in the artistic residency.

The final results will be presented during a showcase for professionals, in the hope that young authors, but also singers, can find a preferential channel to be appreciated and obtain publishing contracts and / or become the author of other Italian performers already known.

The project is ambitious, but perfectly in line with the numerous experiments carried out by Saint Louis in recent decades with decidedly positive results.
