BEATS BY GIRLZ... 

 

is a non-traditional, creative and educational music technology curriculum, collective, and community template designed to empower females to engage with music technology. We provide young women with the guidance, access, tools and role-support to develop their interest (and ultimately their ability to pursue career opportunities) in music production, composition and engineering. We are working towards gender equity in a field where women are highly underrepresented and strive to help other groups mobilize and create similar change in their own communities.

 

Beats By Girlz: Synthesis for YOUTH

with Empathy Cell & Christin Light

Synthesis Youth Winter 2018-2.jpg

Join local producers and synthesis extraordinaires Empathy Cell & Christin Light in workshop that will give students a solid foundation of analog & digital subtractive synthesis. Synthesis is a critical sound design skill where you can make unique sounds and textures from scratch. Learn about how oscillators harness the power of electricity to generate sound, create ADSR envelopes to shape waveforms, and make lots of fun bleeps, blips, and bloops!

No experience necessary and all equipment provided.  Students from previous classes are encouraged to attend and take their skills to the next level. Classes are held in a stimulating environment with approximately eight learners and two teachers. Some music in class is amplified over loudspeakers. A typical class starts with a group lesson and is followed by individual and collaborative work time.
