Brian from C0ndu1t (and the guy who helps me with issues in my home studio--he also does work for Deadmau5, too) let me know about In The Loop, a series of free workshops coming up in Hamilton, Ontario, next month.
Organized by Christina Sealy, In the Loop is designed with young women (ages 14-18) in mind. Here's the plan:
Week 1 (October 6): Digital Recording: Getting Started, An introduction to Ableton Live
Week 2 (October 13): Analog and digital processing. Learn how to manipulate your recorded audio.
Week 3 (October 20): The basis of synthesis. Understanding the fundamentals of sound design.
Week 4 (October 30): Composition: Putting it all together. Create an original soundtrack.
Classes take place at CoBALT Connects, 2 King Street West in Hamilton. Oh--and did I mention that all these 2.5 hour workshops are free?
