In The Workshop: Volcabulary w/ Alexis Icon

Instrument-of-the-Month: Korg Volcas
Inspirational Artist: Aphex Twin 

In this session we’ll be focusing on the Korg Volca series, notably used by artists such as Aphex Twin and OK Go. These portable battery-powered groove boxes play nicely with each other and in any combination make a great sketchpad for musical ideation. In this workshop, Alexis Icon will demonstrate the Korg Volca Beats, Bass, and Keys to give some insight into how these pieces could fit into your musical workflow.

Curated by girlFx, this hands-on workshop series takes inspiration from electronic and underground pioneers, past and present. The Carnegie Library Music Department will also be on hand at each session with instruments available for hands-on musical exploration. After making new sounds of your own, stick around to hear girlFx DJs at Ace Hotel’s In The Weeds.
