EQ: Electronic music-making for Women and Non-Binary individuals
During this workshop, Rose will demonstrate fundamental techniques and software in her creative electronic practice. The workshop will explore mixing in a DAW (digital audio workstation), using vocals and synthesizers from the CLP’s own electronic instrument collection. Participants can practice alongside in their DAWs (bring your own laptop).
Participants of all skill levels are welcome to join the workshop. Feel free to bring your laptop with your DAW and audio samples of your work (complete or in-progress).
Come to listen, ask questions, and make some electronic music! Light snacks will be provided.
