So.... The 2017 term finally kicks off

It's a been a fair bit longer in gestation than intended, but our 2017 term finally kicks off this evening. As we are at (actually above) our capacity, no further applications for this term will be accepted-sorry.

It will be a primarily core skills based term, with electronic music tools and music production our key areas (and fun!!), with DJing, VJing, Music Theory, and Non-Standard music tech ie Mogees/makey makeys etc as additional areas for exploration. We will leave the performance aspects until the second term later in the year, and use this term to build material that can then be utilised in that environment. Our just-hired Associate Producer, Liz Martin, will also bring her many years of experience in music making and teaching to improve further on our previous efforts.

We have a great set of facilitators-a change from last year's having the one key facilitator-check out this killer list:

Production Masterclass with Rick Bull aka Deepchild aka Acharné:
Rick is a legend of Sydney electronica, with his early dub infused albums being very well regarded, and has had great success moving into more Techno oriented pastures since moving to Berlin-he joins us whilst on a brief sojourn home, before he heads back to Europe for the foreseeable future.
Check out some of his tunes: soundcloud.com/deepchild

Production and DJing with Michael Moebus aka Meem:
DJ/Producer Meem is another Sydney legend, recognised as one of Sydney's pre-eminent exponents of Funk, Nu-Funk and Disco, amongst much more. His show Back To Funk has been on 2SER for many, many years, and he continues to DJ and perform live all over Sydney and farther afield.
He will join us to go through some productions skills, and as well as give us a taste of how he goes about preparing for a DJ set. Here's some of his work: meem.bandcamp.com

Airsticks and Non Standard Instruments with Alon Ilsar:
Fresh from his show at the Sydney Conservatorium Of Music for Vivid, Alon will be bringing along his Airsticks to show just whats possible in the realm of creating new instruments, followed by a brainstorming session on what other ways we could create and manipulate music. Check out his website: alonilsar.com/airsticks

Workflow Tips and Tricks with Seduna:
Beat maker to watch, and host of FBI Radio's Glitches, Seduna will swing by to round out the term with a rundown on her process, fave VSTs, and some tips on how to get that bass just so.

But, wait, there's more...
Several more presenters will be involved, and David from Roland will be back to join in the fun.

Regular updates on our progress will be posted, so stay tuned...
