ABOUT THIS EVENT

Event Overview

Have you ever wanted to create your own electronic music? To mash-up a crazy pop song vocal with a gritty 90's grunge instrumental? Or do you just want to record your own guitar and vocal ideas over a synthesized drum beat to sketch out ideas for a band or a record? Learning to use Ableton Live can help you with these and virtually any other digital audio application.

In this workshop, students will view a demonstration outlining some of the many possibilities of creating, remixing and performing different styles of music. Students will also have a chance to try out performance techniques, sequence patterns and record short snippets of audio to experiment with and use as sample material. This format is ideal for aspiring bedroom producers or musicians looking to learn to produce with computers and software. Students will get to hear their own recordings over studio monitors, add special effects and manipulate their audio in order to create an instrumental backing track for a song.

This class will focus on one of Live's most powerful instruments: the Drum Rack, as well as some tricks and shortcuts for editing audio clips.
