How To: Host an International Music Event in Your Living Room

What’s a co-working space party without a Persian setar player or a DJ playing live from a balcony in sunny Romania? Probably the kind of party you would find at some other co-working space…

But not here at Framework! Thanks to Stoneclap, a live music streaming platform founded by Framework residents Kate and Iulian, we partied on down to fresh funky vibes and tasty beats from around the world.

In a similar vein to 'sharing economy' businesses like Uber and Airbnb, Stoneclap connects party hosts with musicians from all corners of the globe to add a dimension to your party that no Spotify playlist could ever bring.

To open the night we were treated to the traditional sounds of the Persian setar as performed by Amir Kaveh from Iran, as well as a question and answer session over Stoneclap’s live video conversation feature. The party continued with The Rabbit King performing live from a balcony overlooking beautiful Bucharest. With the sun illuminating the scene the appeal of the streaming platform really began to shine (pun intended) - Stoneclap provides DJs and musicians the opportunity to brighten up your event while performing outside of the traditional Friday and Saturday night time-slots thanks to differing timezones. That means house parties become exponentially cooler while musicians have more opportunities to perform rockin' shows!

The event was a hit and generated a lot of excitement for the newly launched platform, even while only in its beta state! I very much look forward to the time when attending an international music event in a friend’s living room becomes a common occurrence. House parties will be much better for it.
