Tickets on eventbrite

In this workshop Khyam Allami will explore the subjects of tuning and the inherited biases of music technology through his collaborative project “Apotome” with creative studio Counterpoint. The workshop will include a presentation on tuning and its repressed possibilities, the problematics of music technologies, and a practical introduction to using Leimma and Apotome. Participants will be invited to create their own personalized tuning system and to create generative music using it.

Tickets on eventbrite

Matthew Ryals is a musician, sound designer, and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. Primarily working with a modular synthesizer, his music explores aleatoricism, cybernetics, and unfixed forms. This masterclass will focus on using generative processes to create small and large scale musical structures with a modular synthesizer. Check out his recent album Voltage Scores on Oxtail Recordings.

More masterclasses coming soon.
