Workshops for June/July 2018
MON 11 JUN | TAPE LOOPS
Learn to make and manipulate your own tape loops. Tape splicing is one of the oldest and most powerful techniques used to create electronic music. Equipment provided, but you’re welcome to bring your own cassettes and cassette players.
MON 18 JUN | OUTSIDE RHYTHMS PT1
We’ll head outside an find the rhythms in our everyday life such as cars over a pot holes, repetitive bird song and footsteps in the underpass. Once we have all our materials, we’ll head back to Firstsite and listen back each others recordings.
MON 25 JUN | OUTSIDE RHYTHMS PT2
Lets jam with some outside rhythms! Inspired by Steve Reich’s ‘Different Trains’ we’ll loop different sections of last weeks field recordings and find the melodies and rhythms in the everyday sounds. Then, jam over the top with our instruments.
MON 2 JUL | VOCAL ENSEMBLE
You are the synthesiser! We’ll become human oscillators and experiment with all the weird and wonderful noises we can make with our voices, and vocal microphones. Come explore the instrument we carry out with us every day, our voice.
MON 16 JUL | IN (THE) C
Terry Riley’s famous minimalist piece ‘In C’ consists 53 short musical phrases, all in the key of C. All the players start on phrase one, but each can complete the piece at their own pace creating a wonderful texture of overlapping melodies and rhythms. Twist? We want to play In C actually IN THE SEA!
