What is summer whistle?

Summer Whistle is a songwriting camp that aims to cultivate a diverse, innovative, and collaborative songwriting and production experience which culminates in a collaborative album release.

During the camp, twelve artists from global top-tier music schools, conservatories, communities, and labels will come together and co-write songs that evoke a sense of community that arose despite the pandemic.

Songs written by the artists will culminate in a collaborative album. The album release date is planned to be at the end of June, the time when you can still feel the breeze of the spring and the warmth of the summer, like a whistle from the summer calling. There is a connection between this feeling that ‘something nice ahead is waiting’ with the expectation of the near future life after the pandemic. We want to remind the audience of the nice things that we have, that may have been temporarily forgotten during the pandemic, but still remain in our life: the laughter and the mint smell coming out from a street cafè, and the little moments in everyday life that bring us joy.
