Every weekday during the Together Festival, you can head over to Mmmmaven studios to relax, listen to music, charge your devices, and participate in awesome workshops.

Fusing real instruments with the digital music world creates infinite sonic possibilities. That was a lot of big words, but to put it plainly: when you record a real instrument on the computer you can use tools to make it sound completely different, coming up with new and interesting sounds that give your music a unique style.

The workshop will start out teaching about the different types of effects and modulations available to you to edit your sounds. Then four stations will be available, each specializing on an instrument class ready to plug and play. You can even bring your own instrument to play around with! This is a great hands on experience for anyone interested in sound design.

Join Mmmmaven instructor and DJ/Producer Mike McCarthy (AKA Wobblesauce / Dark City Agent) on Wednesday, May 14th! More info and RSVP.

Can’t make it then? Together is throwing tons of events all week. Away for the week? We offer courses year round!

On Monday, ToUch Performance Art will have a Masterclass Workshop for Collaborative Artists, followed by “Integrating Hardware & Software w/ Ableton Live,” hosted by Damian from Bassic Boston.

ToUch Performance Art’s workshop works with one of the main focuses of the Together festival: collaboration. It’s recommended that musicians bring their instrument for the live collaboration session during the workshop. The masterclass will cover production track analysis, how to build escalating rhythms & riffs, call-and-response between musicians, and more collaboration techniques.
