Tetris Studios 4th Birthday Party
I recently started an internship at Tetris Studios. I am very blessed to be a part of this team and next Saturday the 7th its their 4th Birthday day! I was talking to my boss today and she asked if I would like to play at the show next weekend. I am supporting another artist for his album launch that night but I was able to get an afternoon slot for the Tetris party. So 2 gigs on one day! It’s going to be a big weekend. I feel a sense of community making music that I don’t think I would have found anywhere else in my life. Especially through making Hip Hop. It is a long frustrating road we travel, but the journey is worth it.
“4 years ago, Tanz walked into an empty warehouse in Brunswick with a vision to create a world that existed beyond the rusty gates of the ‘real’ world. A world that inspired people to dream big and provided the tools to morph those dreams into their reality. She saw a world were people traded skills instead of money and success was measured by happiness not bank accounts. A world were where everybody felt at home.
On the 1st of September 2009, she was given the keys and this world was created, she named it TETRIS. She saw all the people and projects as blocks of different colours and different shapes that would come together, all falling perfectly into place, connecting with each other creating stronger projects, producing high quality music and art that represented the florescent back streets of Melbourne, the anti government mind state our generation adorns and the awakening of self sustainability.
In just 4 years Tetris has become a staple in the Melbourne music and arts scene, connecting thousands of people and has created a number of well respected and supported projects for youth, up and coming talent and established artists.
To celebrate our 4th birthday, we’re inviting all our past resident artists, volunteers, crew members, extended music and arts family as well as all the people who haven’t yet had the Tetris experience to join us in doing what we do best… PARTAY!!! and of course shoot hoops, eat burgers, sk8 the mini ramp and have a burn on our brand new ping pong table while our favourite family dj’s and mc’s keep the vibes flowing”.
