An opportunity for young people to explore the possibilities of music technology as a means of creating crossovers between musical genres
The Arts Active Experimental Music Lab is an opportunity for people aged 15 – 19 to explore the possibilities of music technology as a means of creating crossovers between musical genres. Using recording and sound manipulation techniques, participants can use traditional musical instruments and other sound sources, such as found sound and voice, to create experimental music as well as sound art, noise art and performance art. Includes entry level education in audio recording, audio collection, sound manipulation, use of plug ins and the operation of a basic recording set up. Participants are encouraged to bring an instrument and use it to make musical or sound recordings. Virtual instruments, sample packs, synthesisers and loops may also be used. Participants will then be split into pairs or small groups and then encouraged to collaborate in making a short new piece of music from any genre, sound art, noise art or anything else. There will be no barriers to what you can create!
