The project supports young people to develop music making skills, engage within a multi-media context and produce original work. We will follow the interest and needs of participants, incorporating what they bring to the table and creating learning & creative opportunities & directions that match the individuals, the group and the skills our facilitators have to offer.
A key aspect of the project will be the provision of a pathway for participants to explore where their musical interests lie through a flexible, empowering approach and dialogue that builds self-belief and the confidence to take risks and experiment.
The project will offer participants an opportunity to engage in music making initiatives in collaboration with professional practitioners through a range of activities including:
- Digital Music Making & Sound Production
- Sound for Moving Image & Film
- Music Video Making
- Music Production
- Logic Pro & Ableton Live
- Using samples, loops, midi & software instruments
- Creating original music and composition
- Live performance
