/ / / The Junction: An animated series of creative encounters.

Stories of musical magnetism – how unique musical collaborations came to be. Animated short films tell the funny and often unexpected stories of artists, how they met, and the music they created together.

Organic connections can sometimes spark the most fruitful collaborations. In the case of Jessy Lanza and Jeremy Greenspan of Junior Boys, shared roots in Hamilton, Ontario provided the basis for a friendship that’s both musical and quasi-spiritual. Dylan Glynn’s illustrations capture the particular magic of their work together, which is rooted in genuine trust and mutual admiration for each other’s strengths.

The Red Bull Music Academy is a global music institution committed to fostering creativity in music. We celebrate music, its culture, and the transformative minds behind it. Begun in 1998, the Academy has taken the core principles that underlie its annual workshop for selected participants and applied this curatorial approach to events, lectures, and city-wide festivals throughout the year.
