Join us to make marvellous music at Leeds City Museum…
Introduction to Sound Art
14 Aug 2019
Interested in sound? Ever wanted to make your own ‘club music’*?
Make ‘club music' with sound artist Eleanor Cully, of Yorkshire Sound Women’s Network.
Sign up to this free workshop with sound artist Eleanor Cully, of Yorkshire Sound Women’s Network - a group inspiring and enabling women and girls to explore sound and music technology in Yorkshire and beyond. During the workshop we will learn how to record and make sounds around the building and explore the basics of digital mixing - producing a track out of the sounds of the Working Men’s Club.
Open to ages 12+, no experience necessary, all abilities welcome. Parents stay with under 18s.
*‘Club music’ refers to the location of the workshop (at a Working Mens Club) rather than the established genre. The workshop intends to create a new soundscape informed by the building and social history of the space rather than teach people how to make this form of music.
