synth noise: a workshop

September 17, 2016


As part of the small programme of events complimenting Roxie Collins’ exhibition Relish What you have Achieved, Stirchley Happenings present a synthesiser workshop – Saturday 8th October, 6pm – 9pm at P Cafe, Stirchley.

The session will help you learn more about your synth and jam with other synth sound lovers, led by synth musician and Birmingham City University tutor James Dooley.

This workshop is for synth fanatics who a) have a synth (or can borrow one), b) want to learn more about the basics of how synths work and c) want to make improvised collaborative synth noise!

Spaces are limited so booking is recommended.

You’ll need your own synthesiser or synth software/ app, amp (or portable speakers if you’re using a mobile/ laptop/ tablet (e.g. computer speakers) and leads/ cables, and a power extension cable might come in handy.

The session is free (donations welcomed).

Roxie Collins is one of Stirchley Happenings’ co-founders. Her artworks draw on 12” record sleeve aesthetics, crediting the cold synthesised tones of sound pioneers such as New Order, Depeche Mode and Japan as inspiration for seemingly emotionless abstract art.
