Shaking Through is a recording and documentary series that explores the importance of creative expression and its impact on society through the perspective of people who dedicate their lives to making music.
With this series we are committed to enabling self expression and seek to inspire and educate the community about the creative process, and the art and science of recording music.
Members can download the multi-track raw audio and stems from these sessions to practice their mixing skills, make their own creative remixes, and share their work back with the community for feedback and support.
Along with tutorial documents and lesson plans, these tracks are made available to audio engineering and mixing programs in Universities and high schools all around the world.
To start off our 10th year, we are re-releasing the very first episodes of Shaking Through, from before it was even called Shaking Through! These four episodes, which we’re calling “Volume 0,” show our beloved home-base (Miner Street Recordings in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia) as it was 10 years ago…my how much has changed!
These episodes were released before we started releasing the tracks from the sessions. Since then, multitracks have become a flagship for Weathervane, and a great way to bring together a community of remixers. We are happy to say that members will now be able to download these multitracks to remix and share back on our site. We hope you enjoy and happy mixing!
Every other month, Weathervane conducts recording and mixing workshops where music fans and production enthusiasts of all levels get together to learn and practice the techniques and processes we use every day in the studio.
To attend, you can purchase tickets a-la-carte, or if you're an Event Access member, simply click the RSVP links to reserve your spot.
Weathervane hosts intimate studio concerts at Miner Street Recordings in Philadelphia that feature past and future Shaking Through artists and other local musicians. We also hold residencies and curate shows at local Philadelphia music venues.
These shows are another opportunity for us to highlight artists we think have an important message to share through their music, and to get people together in the same room who think supporting, engaging with, and creating music is an invaluable part of our culture.

You can purchase the music online or contact us for a physical copy with 100% of the proceeds going directly to FONE.
Weathervane's work is supported by membership dues, contributions from major donors, sponsorships from vendors in the community, and grants from arts, culture, and educational foundations.
Our partners provide us with the tools and resources that make our work possible, and they make thousands of dollars of in-kind donations to the Weathervane Music community every year. Thank you for all that you do!
