Two spaces up for grabs at our pilot session on Tuesday August 25th...

We are excited to announce the launch of a new initiative with Digit as part of our ongoing Clash Cares programme. 

The recent launch of our record label MSC_RPBLC with debut double A-side release from VOID making waves, has opened up a new pathway for aspiring creatives via our network.

As part of our ongoing work with Able Orchestra and Digit, we have put together a new framework of educational sessions that aims to normalise the conversation and enable future creators of all abilities.

Digit is an award-winning multimedia creative agency. They create and distribute high-quality audio content and develop tools and frameworks that make content creation accessible. Combining the lived experience and area expertise of their workforce with progressive business thought leadership. 

They increase access to and support participation in the arts, and through industry apprenticeships, nurture accessible pathways to meaningful employment to drive greater diversity in the creative industries.

Jason Dasent, a core team member at Digit, brings extensive expertise through his decades of experience in all aspects of recording and music production through his studio, Studio Jay Recording in Trinidad.

As a visually impaired producer, Jay has lived experience of overcoming the limitations of mainstream music software and develops overlays for popular music production software, making them accessible to screen reading software.

We will be bringing together technology and innovation that can enable visually impaired and sighted musicians alike to further their creative aspirations.
