We are super proud to have hosted/audio and video captured Terri Lyne Carrington’s project “Social Science” at ShapeShifter Lab for their virtual performance at the 63rd Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony! It was a wonderful experience recording these musicians. Though not all parties recorded at the same time or place (Terri Lyne Carrington and Debo Ray recorded their parts separately), the music and video–which was edited by Lumumba Leon Reynolds II–came out beautifully. Check it out on our showcase page!


Check out our latest compilation of past recordings that were done at ShapeShifter lab! The list is growing! Feel free to submit your video to us if we’ve missed it.
