Join Pam Hulme to try some live looping with organ as part of Electric Spring 2020!
‘The essential nature of the organ as a synthesizer layering sound upon sound is controlled by an alchemy very similar to that which generates electronic music.’ Michael Bonaventure
Although there are many timbral and organisational similarities between pipe organ and electronic music, combining the two is a relatively new development.
Digitally augmenting the organ in live performance through adding effects and live looping the sound can be very challenging but pushes the boundaries of possibility for this incredible instrument.
After a short presentation on Pam Hulme’s work with organ and live looping, and an introduction to the technology and the Phipps Hall organ, participants will have an opportunity to experiment themselves. Together we will explore Pam’s semi-improvised composition, Machine Prayer, and work towards a collaborative performance. No prior experience is necessary, and you can choose to attend the workshop either as an active participant or passive observer.
Workshop open to all – no prior experience necessary, women and people of minority genders are encouraged to attend.Limited places available: 16 participants (eight active participants, eight passive observers). Please book your free place in advance via Eventbrite
