CREATIVE MUSIC PRODUCTION IN ABLETON LIVE
Mixing is the process of fine-tuning individual music tracks, balancing them and creating space in the “mix”. In this 4-hour workshop, participants will deepen their understanding of mixing through listening and hands-on practice with Ableton Live. Composer and artist Lee Gilboa will give you a grounding in the fundamentals of mixing and how to apply them to your own musical style.
Topics the class will cover:
What is a mix?
Levels & Panning
EQ & Compression
Creative processing & breaking the rules
Listening & analysis of various contemporary artists
The workshop is suitable for those with a basic working knowledge of audio editing software.
Lee Gilboa is an Israeli composer, artist and audio engineer. In her work she uses speech, audio spatialization and vocal processing in order to address themes such as identity, gender, naming and objectification. Lee is co-curating CT::SWaM's ExChange series with Daniel Neumann and presented work in venues such as The Cube at Virginia Tech, Fridman Gallery, The Immersion Room, Fourth World Festival, The Honk Tweet, Spectrum and Resonance FM Radio among others. Lee’s debut album, The Possibility of Sonic Portraiture, was released by Contour Editions during the summer of 2019.
