Music Editing for Solo Performers


Improve the live sound for your variety act or burlesque performance with artist Brett Ashleigh.


9 hours total, over 3 sessions // $92, or $65 with any VIVO Producer Membership (+GST), all equipment provided


Session 1: Fri, Mar 6, 6pm - 9pm
Session 2: Sat, Mar 7, 1pm - 4pm
Session 3: Sun, Mar 8, 1pm - 4pm



Two extended subsidies available for this workshop: 


Prerequisite: General computer literacy (e.g., saving files, facility with a mouse and keyboard) is required.


This beginner workshop is designed for burlesque or variety performers who want to improve their audio files for playback during their live shows. This is a practical workshop which will present an effective workflow for customizing your act’s audio, smoothing transitions between songs, and even setting up a show control system to automate an entire set list.


Over 3 sessions, you will:

  • explore the functionality of cheap/free Digital Audio Workstations and editing software (Qlab, Garageband, and Audacity)
  • learn the basic principles of editing audio files
  • demonstrate the ability to edit audio files (cut, fade, loop, merge songs etc.) and output their track as a new single file.
  • create an automated setlist of 3 songs in Qlab
  • work through your challenges with other participants

Bring your own audio. Come prepared with 5 songs, any file type, and you will leave with a killer audio track ready for live performance.


All equipment and software provided. However, participants may bring their own headphones if they wish.



Brett Ashleigh is a sound designer, researcher, and PhD student in Communication at Simon Fraser University. Her work takes an intersectional feminist approach to social issues and provides sound-based interventions. In this workshop, she draws from her background in theatre and film to empower artists with the tools they need to create polished additions to their acts.

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.
