Instructor: Christopher Willits

Date: 12 - 4 pm August 9th, 2014

Location: Overlap Studio, Oakland CA. (Fruitvale area address shared upon registration).

Ableton Live 3 opens up the complexity of Ableton Live. What might have seemed like a somewhat simple tool for audio production is actually an incredibly complex matrix of creative possibilities.

In fact there are so many possibilities that it's often difficult to know what path to take once you hit this level of the tool. 

Willits will show you the most efficient and creative path to producing the music that you want to create.

In addition to all of the topics listed below, and emphasis will be on the creative process and how this tool is completely connected to a fluid workflow.

Listening to Nature Part 2: Integrating Field Recordings

Eventbrite - Listening to Nature Part 2: Integrating Field Recordings with Ryan Kleeman

Instructor: Ryan Kleeman

Date: 12 - 4 pm July 26, 2014

Location: Overlap Studio (Fruitvale, Oakland)

Our journey continues into the wonderful sounds of nature. We delve deeper into listening and organizing the sounds we collected in the field. This class serves as an introduction for those just getting started with sampling field recordings, equalizing recordings and creative processing of sounds captured in the field.

Students will learn about stereo imaging, basic editing of waveforms, filtering, and creative manipulation of field recordings within a digital audio workstation.
