The idea of ODA STUDIOS was born out of my longing for a context and a place where I could work with music. The purpose of ODA STUDIOS is to gather, strengthen and elevate non-male musicians and offer a creative platform for skills development, collaboration and inspiration.
- Selen Özan, founder.
An ambition of ours is to inspire people to make similar initiatives that takes, not only the music industry, but also the society forward. In the end, it's all about giving people the opportunity to create a safe creative space.
- Barbara Chamoun, co-founder.
ODA STUDIOS lifts and gathers women and trans people in composition and production.
We want to offer a safe place where creativity will flow freely, where experience is to be exchanged and new contraventive ideas encouraged.
Oda Studios is a separatist recording collective for women and trans people. With its headquarters in the heart of Stockholm, it is a unique creative home for 19 producers, songwriters, mixing engineers and recording artists.
