About RED CLAY Studios

RED CLAY Studios is a multi-purpose, multimedia production space in rural Blount County, Alabama. 

Here, we facilitate a wide range of services dealing with music, audio and video production and editing, and media archiving and preservation. Red Clay Studios is the home of Munirah Vision and Equanimity Sound & Media Arts, with Mama Faika Munirah and Tommy Fluker as the primary directors, respectively. We view this as a creative and sacred space, where creativity, community, education and the preservation of our musical and ancestral legacies are amongst our main driving forces.

 

Archiving

Through the archiving and restoration of vintage and current multimedia formats (video, sound and voice, images), Red Clay Studios is available to assist in creating a plan to ensure that your cherished recordings, found footage, and family treasures will be well preserved. Our vibrant culture of music, voice and storytelling, dance, art, and our most memorable moments are more than deserving of remaining in our lineages for future generations to come.

 

We are also host to a number of vinyl record collections, personal and gifted, which are a part of our ever growing library and music preservation ideals. 

Housing indigenous African music and her many expressions of sound, rhythm, healing and ritual across the globe is the foundation of this on-going multi-generational collection of music. 

 

The Space 

After working in multiple studios, some excessively filled with recording equipment, hardware and towers of computers, the idea behind Red Clay was to have a resourceful and creative space with a more organic and natural feel. The result is an intentional space where repurposed wood, doors, paper, tables, and other recycled and found items have received new lives. Low energy LED lighting, laptop computers, kraft paper flooring, repurposed desk, table and shelving contribute to our intention of keeping our energy footprint as minimal as possible on the land. 

This studio space has been a work of love and will continually be one of progress. We give thanks to those who have had a hand in the design (and re-design :), development and construction process, from youngest (4yrs) to eldest (65+ yrs :)
