Synths for women +/ non-binary people +/ trans people

October 29 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$66.00 – $99.00

About the workshop

This meet-up is for people of marginalised genders, including women, non-binary people and trans people.

In this introduction to subtractive synthesis, you will get hands-on time with some amazing machines as well as one-on-one guidance.

You can be an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro, curiosity is the only prerequisite: any skill or experience level in music, production or synthesis is welcome even if that is none at all! These meet-ups aim to be about connecting, sharing, exploring and playing with sound and ideas around sound.

At the conclusion of this course people will have been introduced to the key concepts and basic methods needed to create sound on multiple kinds of vintage and modern synthesisers, and hands-on experience creating audio and modulation pathways using key components of synthesis such as Oscillators, Filters, VCAs, Sequencing, LFOs, Ring Modulators, Envelopes/ADSRs, patching, etc, in a supportive and fun environment.

Each session runs from 6pm – 10pm and is hosted by femme/non-binary MESS staff. Sessions are limited to 6 people which allows for a group introduction and discussion as well as some one-on-one time with the staff member.

Still not sure if this event is for you? Reach out and ask! We are very friendly and happy to help clarify if you have any questions.
