Beats By Girlz: Synthesis for YOUTH

with Empathy Cell ( & Christin Light (

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.
