This advanced workshop is designed for women and non-binary folks who want to further their understanding of synthesizers and already have some experience with them. Have you played around a bit and are ready to take it to the next level? This is for you!

 

It combines theory and hands-on practice of audio synthesis. Deepen your understanding of synthesizer equipment and signal flow, and learn how to program sounds and sequences from scratch. Discover the science behind the sound as you modify and modulate the waveforms and build your individual custom patches.

 

The necessary equipment is provided, but you are encouraged to also bring your own synthesizer, headphones, audio equipment, and laptop with software, and learn how to make them work during the workshop. This is what makes this workshop special -- Victoria will meet you where you’re at! The focus will be on making meaningful sounds using your own ears and whatever is on hand. 

 

Responding to participants’ needs, the format for this workshop will include a lot of open time for you to ask questions and try your hand at experimenting with synthesis. Victoria will provide technical and creative assistance.

 

You've fiddled aimlessly for hours, maybe gotten a few interesting sounds by accident. Presets get boring after while. This workshop will empower you to create your own unique sounds!

 

Bring a USB memory stick or other external storage device if you want to take home any sounds that you might record.

Involving audiences with interactive technology such as gesture control resulting in complex, experimental works that emerge from the nexus of art and technology, but remain accessible and fun.

VIVO Media Arts Centre

VIVO MEDIA ARTS CENTRE, incorporated in 1973 as the Satellite Video Exchange Society (SVES), is Vancouver’s oldest media arts access centre. VIVO continues to fulfill its founding vision by directly supporting independent artists, community-based producers and activists to develop and exchange their skills in a supportive environment. Our members gather around the tools and material means of production to invent new understandings, new genres and new friendships. Reflecting both the diversity of contemporary technologies and the symbiotic communities that coalesce around new forms of knowledge and creativity, our programming fosters formal, aesthetic and critical approaches to media arts practice. VIVO builds an audience of makers, organizers and critics through artists in residence, lectures, workshops, performances, exhibitions and curatorial and archival research. As an integral artist run centre in Vancouver, our resources and facilities will continue to inform and influence engagement in all levels of media art investment.
