Experience music in the moment, with like-minded people. In an intimate setting, students will get hands-on experience using hardware synthesizers in a variety of different configurations. Students will gain a basic understanding of subtractive synthesis, functions of a sequencer/drum machine, basic song structure and an overview of performative effects. By the end of the program, students will be able to cohesively write and perform a song with hardware on the spot.
INSTRUMENTS & CONCEPTS COVERED:
- Signal Flow
- The Mixing Console
- The Drum Machine
- The Sampler
Classes will consist of 4-6 students. Together they will develop analog hardware and performance skills. Various groups of two or three students will be asked to perform and improvise together. Once the program is finished, the students will have an opportunity to play live for their friends and family in one of the city’s clubs.
The Synthesis Program is available on Fridays from 6pm-9pm.
Fridays 8/10/18 – 9/28/18 (6-9pm)
