Overview

Outside Sound is partnering with Taller Puertorriqueño, a dynamic arts and culture organization in North Philadelphia, for a seven-week music writing and production residency. Guest teaching artists will be collaborating with Taller Puertorriqueño participants - young students from North Philadelphia's Puerto Rican and Latino communities - to create new music and mixed media works. These works, which will blend writing, performance, dance/choreography, and visual arts, will speak to their experiences, insights, and ideals. The finished product will be performed and put on display at the Kimmel Center's SEI Innovation Studio.

Outside Sound is an instrumental Jazz ensemble based in Philadelphia and was founded by bassist and composer Chris Coyle. Outside Sound performs mixed media works in collaboration with artists, students and participants from varied (and sometimes under-served) communities.  The ensemble has worked with such participants through workshops, residencies and performances that have taken place in the greater Boston, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia areas.  Locally, Outside Sound has presented their work at venues such as Philadelphia Magic Gardens, The Philadelphia Art Museum, and the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. https://outsidesound.net/about/
