Due to COVID-19 many live music venues across the country are closed and the artists who depended on them are now performing from their homes to stay connected to fans. Empty Space Project has partnered with Thunderbird Cafe & Music Hall to utilize their building while it’s empty, filling the void, bringing life back to the artist community. Empty Space Project will be filming artists performances live in the music hall without an audience and releasing the footage online.
“We’ve expanded on what we originally created,” said Pergal. “Our main goal with these renovations was first and foremost to create a space that is great for both the performer and the patron. From sight lines to acoustics, hospitality to entertainment, the overall concert experience will be enhanced.”
This location is full of surprises. Equipped with 2 stages, three bars, lights and audio equipment, and tons more.
Since August 2019 we have been partnered with AK Valley Park in New Kensington, PA. The property is 22 acres housing 3 separate warehouses, 2 of which are being used by the Empty Space Project during renovation. We bring artist out to New Kensington and show them the possibilities in this growing city, capturing raw footage of them creating in the warehouses.
Ak valley Park is 22 acres of straight creative freedom. The owners are transforming the old Aluminum Factory of America plant, where most of the country’s aluminum was made at one point, into an event center and studio space for artists.
2 warehouses on location, completely gutted out, giving a unique industrial aesthetic to any performance filmed here.
