The Low Four Studio is a new music space within the Old Granada Studios HQ Building that will be hosting, streaming and archiving its own television-style, online music programming.
Adding to the building’s musical legacy – which includes TV debuts from The Beatles and The Sex Pistols – Low Four launches on 27th May with a performance from Manchester indie rockers Everything Everything to be streamed across lowfour.tv. You can win tickets by following @LowFourStudio on Twitter.
Boasting a six camera, Ultra High Definition video system, the Low Four team will be recording live performances from both established international touring acts and emerging local artists. The inclusion of an audience viewing balcony means that these recordings (along with other special events, concerts and parties) will be made open to members of the public.
The studio’s larger goal is to reflect and reaffirm Manchester’s international reputation for music and youth culture but to also nurture new talent directly; pledging to make regular awards to the city’s most promising new musicians by granting free recording time and access to the studio’s production and development team. Application will be open to everyone through the Low Four website. Behind the scenes, Low Four will be training and inspiring future generations of music and video producers through an education partnership with the University of Salford.
