EEP! Workshop: Handmade Electronic Instruments
Amina Kirby will demo handmade instruments she invented and built, and discuss her strategies for making electronic music from scratch.
This workshop is part of EEP! … an (E)lectronic (E)nsemble (P)erformance Weekend
About EEP: Electronic music today is dominated by production, where musical flow is pre-recorded and we sing along slaved to its rhythm. Live electronic music survives mostly as a solo genre, since performers aren’t needed to produce every possible sound. But EEP! … music is a social practice! This weekend features electronic musicians who play live music together, because electronics allow us as artists to connect and converse musically in crazy and wonderful new ways. This mini-festival also celebrates the new multichannel sound system at C4NM generously provided by Meyer Sound, which is meant to encourage more electronic music at C4NM. Two free workshops (including this one!) precede the weekend shows to invite the community to participate in experiencing electronic music in our space.
