HOW TO START PLAYING MUSIC WITHOUT KNOWING HOW TO PLAY AN INSTRUMENT?
The workshop offers an introduction to playing electronic music. There will be a drum machine, synthesizers, noise boxes and good old casios;-) as well as vocal effects. We will start from basic information on cables and electricity as well song writing exercises. Then we will take it from there and try to make a song. It will be a space to try things out, share experiences and resources and get to now other geeks.
We welcome newcommers as well as folks who have joined us before ♥
