19 full lessons of electronic music. screens, leds, knobs, flashy buttons, a plethora of cables, some lofty style chaos.
15 students join an exploration of electronic music; they produce out of a special ableton live setup with lots of noises, voices, drums and synth-lines and they learn how to make live musik with grandma Korg MonoPoly, Volca Series (Bass, Key, Beats and Sample), Monotribe, Kaossilator Pro and even some more devices.
We've been studying Stockhausen, Kraftwerk, Jean Michel Jarre, Detroit Techno, Roland Factorys, Gabber, Chiptune, Game Boy Modifications and how to make, record and arrange noises with an iPad (I hate them PADZ but they're sometimes handy and I feel ashamed to even mention Garage Band, but in this specific case it was quite helpful....)
Here you can find the experimental, loops and tracks my students uploaded to soundcloud.com so far:
