Workshop instructors: Kevin Cardoso and Ben Turner
Workshop fee: $35
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to sampling and recording techniques through community based improvisation and audio journaling. The workshop instructors will provide live and digital instruments, along with loopers, effects pedals, and basic music production gear; participants may bring their own instruments, but this is optional. Participants will come away with a recording of a complete song built from the manipulated sounds generated during the improvisation session.
More specifically, workshop participants will:
– Explore the idea that music is a human behavior and is hardwired into our human experience and existence.
– Become familiar with music gear and music production considerations that include creating a structure from sampling improvisation in order to build a song.
– Learn about various tools that can be used to manipulate sound.
– Work together and support one another in creating a community based recording.
The workshop is open to all – no previous experience with a musical instrument or music production is required. To see pics from the first workshop, please visit: http://thefusefactory.org/project/introduction-to-sampling-and-recording-through-community-based-improvisation-workshop/
