What's in it for you: as a doubleOone member, you will attend a 4-hour recording session in a state of the art studio, and share this unique moment with a band as they record a track, and work together to reach excellence. You will be in the recording room with the musicians as they play. You will find that studios are sanctuaries, places where time flows at its own natural pace, and where true inspiration is captured in sound and music. If you are a musician yourself, we might even have a surprise for you. The recording is followed by a cultural chat and a Q&A session, addressing creativity, emotional labor, art and life choices, communication,  practice, inspiration, achievements and the road to one's true calling, ambition and mastery.

*Our recording sessions standards: you will attend the recording session with a small doubleOone group (only 20-25 spots available/recording), and engage in creating genuine music. Catering and wine will be served. 25th Street Recording is a world-class music recording facility niched in the heart of downtown Oakland. It features many specialized construction techniques that make it one of the quietest, best sounding studios in the world.
