RE:VIVE x SAE: ADE Conceptual Sampling Workshop


ADE 2016: RE:vive x sae

Applications for this event are closed.

Getting inspired by Damrak and Struggle & Emerge? Want to push your production skills and broaden your horizons as a music producer? As part of Amsterdam Dance Event 2016, we will be teaming up with RE:VIVE (Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision) for another "Conceptual Sampling Workshop".

The workshop is based on the theme 'around the house' and the idea of conceptual sampling. Participants will receive a sample pack of archival sounds from archives all around Europe and be challenged to create a new track using solely these sounds. Adding another element to the workshop, every artist will be encouraged to try and work a concept into their track. IT could be "morning breakfast", "shower time", "Saturday, 5:00AM" or whatever you want. The important thing is that you can convey to the others.

On hand to help you along your way will be Giacomo Piscitelli, electronic music production teacher at SAE. Giacomo will demo how using simple tools like EQ, filtering, compression and reverb these unimpressive sounds can be turned into an entire instrument rack.

RE:VIVE alumni Cocktail Party effect (Fog Mountain, Nomie Sound) aka Kasket (Apollo Records, R&S) as well as born in Flamez (UnReal) will be on hand to help out, share their experiences and probably jam a bit.

At the end everyone will have a chance to take their track home and flesh them out a bit. We'll share all the outcomes!

Selected Participants will be informed no later than 21 October (00:00h)
