Between July and August 2018, composer and sound designer Louis Palfrey led a series of four standalone workshops in digital sound recording and production for beginners. This took place across four Wednesdays, from 4 July to 1 August 2018, 7-9pm.
Session 1: Wednesday 4 July 2018, 7-9pm
This first session will be a basic introduction to digital recording and production terminology and basic field recording including demonstrations and practical exercises.
Session 2: Wednesday 11 July 2018, 7-9pm
The second session will be looking at signal processors, effects and sound manipulation with demonstrations and practical exercises.
Session 3: Wednesday 25 July 2018, 7-9pm
This third session will be looking at digital, acoustic, and experimental instruments including demonstrations and practical exercises.
Session 4: Wednesday 1 August 2018, 7-9pm
This fourth and last session of the series will act as a listening party for those that are willing to share their work with the rest of the group.
For each workshop, you will need to bring a laptop, headphones, a device to record sound on such as mobile phone or portable microphone. You will also need to install a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation recording software) prior to the session.
Reaper, a DAW for Mac and Windows can be downloaded and tried for free here.
If you are unable to record sounds, Louis will provide a few sample sounds for each session.
This event is free but you must register here.
