Discover the actions carried out by the microFusa schools during the first semester of this year. Activities focused on promoting the work and effort of our students
This year it will go down in the annals of history as the coronavirus pandemic. We will remember it as that year in which we spent a few months in confinement, the year of the masks. These first months have been hard in many ways, but at microFusa schools we have at least had the opportunity to celebrate some of the events that we usually organize with the aim of giving visibility to the work and effort of our students. Some of these actions were carried out before the difficult situation in which we found ourselves began, and they developed with complete normality. In others we had to adapt to the conditions of confinement and, joining the philosophy of the hashtag #Istayathome, we did everything possible to continue giving voice to our students.
On Friday, February 21, we celebrated our Winter Festival 2020 in the LAUT room in Barcelona. An event with an exceptional lineup of electronic and urban music that featured high-quality artists and future promises.
The cartel was made up of the following artists:
• Adrián Gómez + Pablo Belluco – Techno
• Khashimusic – Techno
• Aubor – Urban
• Clara Rueda + Julen A.K.A. FEZE – Urban
• D0X0RB– Electro

Launch of the MFRecords label
March 27 was the official launch of the MFRecords label, a project promoted by MusicBuisness and Music Production students. Precisely, the presentation album of this new label, Recopilatorio MicrofusaVol 1, brings together the creations of the students of Musical Production during the 2019 academic year, capturing the different stages of the year by finding different sounds in it.
In this first production we can find a wide variety of genres: ambient, vintage sounds, downtempo, hip-hop, jazz and rhythms focused on the dance floors. The Recopilatorio MicrofusaVol 1 playlist is made up of:
- Pink Kiwi – Midnight on December 24th
- Ramybè – Terra
- Irene Rodicio – Lit Off
- Tape Jizz – Dirty Jazz
- Uroboros – Astral Sortilege
- RomainBlitz – Sound of Life
- RUMTropic – Single Bass
Between April 5 and 8 we held a very special contest focused on our schools in Barcelona and Madrid. The concept of the call was to encourage creativity among our students since confinement does not have to be an impediment to continue cultivating our musical ability.
The idea was very simple: to produce an original song from any musical genre. We wanted our students to record at home while producing. And they shared it on social networks.
The requirements were also feasible:
• We wanted an original song of any musical genre of between 2 and 4 minutes.
• During the song, there had to be a musical ‘hook’ that contained the words ‘coronavirus’ (or covid19) and ‘I keep producing’. Whether it was sung, rapped, with a vocoder, with a talking synth, etc.
• Regarding the delivery format, we create an Activity on the Virtual Campus where the file can be uploaded in WAV format.
The winner was chosen by vote in the Campus and this was his prize:
• A video montage will be made with all your videos and the chosen theme. This video will be promoted by networks and will be the ambassador of the #yomequedoproduciendo movement of microFusa.
• The winning theme will be part of the MicrofusaVol 2 Collection with the best projects of the school launched by MFRecords.
• And the most voted person will also receive the FocusriteScarlett Solo production kit, valued at € 200.
The winners of the contest were:
Inaction – Mateo Guiu
Isolation – Dani Max
And remember that both in our school in Barcelona, in Madrid and in the online school, the training continues and we are already preparing the next school year. If you think that music is your future, start planning and choose your course.
