More and more electronic elements are merging with the traditional way of playing instruments and performing with the band. In this course, we learn how to make and manipulate sounds with the help of a computer, and with use of the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) Ableton Live, designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging and mixing. With it we're able to produce electronic music and perform it using Launchpads and other MIDI controllers.
This course is also about field work, as we explore recording techniques and often collaborate with other courses at the school. Will sample and record bands and add another dimension to the conventional performance. At the end of each term, participants will perform, presenting their compositions and arrangements.
