Hé there!

It’s been awhile since you’ve heard from us. We had to temporarily put the brakes on due to some unexpected matters with the Adelaide City Council - you know how that goes. As a result we couldn’t proceed with our official launch party, which was a bit of a bummer, but we will be rescheduling this soon! The good news is, it won’t be too long as we quickly move through the motions with Council to ensure we are all on the same page.

In the meantime we are operating as per usual here at Mâché, so let me run through a couple of updates. We've been pretty busy having some great events like Yoga Mâché featuring the lovely Izzy from Fresh Sprouts (every Saturday starting from November 12th) and our cofounders Mum Sheela Langeberg running a drumming workshop for a large group of ladies to empower them through song!

We are super chuffed to have a growing community of talented co-working members like Cara here. Over the coming weeks we'll be sharing their story with you on our social media channels and here on our blog! The space itself is pretty much done! Yep, we’ve completed two more rooms, our Executive Suite and our Recording Studio.

The Executive Suite is available now for a fraction of the cost that you would pay for a space of it’s size (25sqm) and unique qualities in the City. It features; 3.2m ceilings, baltic floorboards and a huge bay window with a spectacular park view. It’s perfect for a small team or several individuals that require a little more privacy to get the job done. Throughout the month of November we are offering a special discount of $100 p/mth if you sign up before December!

As mentioned, we have also completed our Recording Studio and we’ve worked hard to create the most affordable one of it’s type in the City, with some of the best acoustics you can find! We are talking about the space where Fresh FM cut their teeth before they were a thing for only $25 p/hr. When you walk in you get a chilled vibe that’s somewhere between a study designed in the 1970’s and a sauna, without the extreme heat of course. It features lightly lacquered pine, that clads all the walls, a raw pine desk and a mint condition couch that we picked up from the Blackwood Bargain Centre that is probably from the 70’s.

Our friends from Sounds Out of Hours provide equipment that includes a Macbook Pro Laptop with Ableton Live and suite of other recording software, studio monitors, a mixing desk, MPC, 4 microphones with stands and ergonomic chairs for you and your guests. These are all included in our hourly hire. It’s perfect for the person with a podcast or voice over project, a practice space for vocalists or for music teachers.

There a tonnes more updates that I didn't mentioned here to keep things short and sweet, but we will be doing blogs weekly from here on in, so much more to come! One update that I should mention now, because she will be writing our next blog, is the addition to the Mâché family - Ms Bianka Feo (featured in the photo above). She joins the team to make moves on the marketing and events side of Mâché and has already brought some brilliant ideas to the team that you'll all being seeing the fruits of in the coming months.

That's it from me and from us for now. Thanks for tuning in. See you all here on Hé next week.

Peace
