Electro-acoustic Sound Art Production for Female Identified Artists
In this workshop female participants will learn how to produce their own sound works, using their own recordings (recorded in the workshop), and further processing. The mentor will focus on Musique Concrète techniques mixed with electronic sound production. This electro-acoustic workshop uses Delia Derbyshire and John Cage’s works as intellectual and sonic reference points.
We will learn how to record professional audio samplers, the world of field recordings and audio formats including also the more accessible ways to record on your own sound using your cellphone. After this comes an introduction to Musique Concrète techniques and sound art production, and the first view of Ableton Live software.
In the second part we will explore Ableton Live in more detail. Audio Effects, Instruments, Recording, Audio-Editing and audio mixdowns.
At the end all participants will create a 10 minute sound art composition by themselves using all the elements learned in this workshop including self made audio and field recordings as well as audio software and sound art creative techniques.
Each participant will get a certificate of participation which can be included in their CV.
