Why we built a studio in shipping containers: Dynaudio Unheard at Midem 2019

June 06, 2019 2019, Midem

Dynaudio Unheard is a state-of-the-art touring recording studio travelling in search of the best undiscovered talent … and finding plenty of it.

The annual Midem music industry conference in Cannes is an essential for anyone in the business – whether they’re sitting behind a computer keyboard or an eight-octave one. It’s a place where breakthrough artists go to meet the people who can make them megastars.

But to get heard, you need to record something. And for many artists that’s where the story ends – they simply don’t have the money or the contacts to take that first step.

That’s where the Dynaudio Unheard studio comes in. Artists can use it free of charge to record a live session, then take away their recording and a music video to use wherever and however they want. No catch.

How does Dynaudio make money from this? We don’t. This is all about the artists. We’ve been making speakers for people to enjoy music with for more than 40 years – and we want to give something back to the industry.

Because music never rests.
