Saturday 13 13:00 - 14:15
SonarComplex - Indoors
The Animato Audio Modular Synthesiser 101 Workshop provides a detailed insight into the world of modern modular synthesisers to inspire people with their nigh-endless musical possibilities. We will be covering: modular synthesis basics and principles; advanced patch building from scratch; and generative strategies and techniques. Participants will be encouraged to get hands-on and take part in patching and interaction with a modular system. A live, interactive, improvised jam session, in which audience members are welcome to take part, will be held at the end of the workshop.
Whether you are a trained musician or someone who is just interested in music and sound, the modular synthesiser is guaranteed to get you into music-making or noise-jumbling in no time. Join us on a journey into a new sonic landscape!
