Computers are a common tool for creative arts and music. This 5-week program will familiarize members with the use of sequencing and audio production software and synthesizers and will cover some of the technical 'mysteries' which are critical to comprehending use. This program is mostly about exploring the musical production process and finding ways to explore personal musical experimentation. The only prerequisites are interest in music, some keyboard and/or guitar skill, and curiosity. The class structure will consist of lecture/workshop sessions, individual studio times for trying the different functions of the software, and playback times to share work with other classmates. Members will be expected to spend a minimum of two 4-hour blocks in the studio per week. Consulting times will be scheduled to permit members to meet for individual or small group assistance in the studio.
