Applications closing soon for the Music Technology Workshops for Women Newcastle.

Are you a female musician, DJ, producer or creative that would like to expand your music technology skills? Would you like to add another dimension to your songwriting, production or live performance? Shiny Shiny are heading to Newcastle on the 19/20 September to deliver a weekend workshop packed with foundational skills in Ableton live software for production, inspiring activities for content creation, and practical hands on experience in using Ableton for live performance.

The workshop will be held at Sawtooth Studio’s- A high end acoustically engineered rehearsal,recording  and workshop space. The studio is based in Tighes Hill in Newcastle and is a creative hub to connect and nurture a network of artists and community members, run by Clint Topic and Maree Lowes.

The facilitators – Patty Bom and Melania Jack are all about making music technology accessible, useable and creatively inspiring. They have a wealth of experience and education between them in sound engineering, electronic music production, live performance and film production. Inspired by the international group Female Pressure, they are passionate about encouraging and supporting more females to get into the industry.

At the workshop you will learn the basics of the software and how to build beats, add instruments, arrange and record. Creative content activities break up the computer time, and live performance using Ableton Live’s new “Push” instrument take it to the next stage. Expect to leave the workshop feeling inspired and equipped to be making your own tracks, and having met a bunch of other creatives with potential to collaborate with!

Participants from previous workshops have said-

“This course has been fantastic. I have used Ableton and written songs for a long time, but this course gave a whole other layer of process, creative writing and collaboration. I learnt things I didn’t expect to; the creative process, and access to other peoples opinions and idea’s. The tutorials/workshops were great. But ultimately to be really true to the integrity of what I am trying to say- Thank you so much Patty and Melania. My song would not be here if it wasn’t for this course and I am proud of what I have done”. Participant of the Byron Series.

“Learning from women presenters particularly, really helped me grasp concepts of sound production in a clear and accessible way”.
