By trying to create a digital creative process in a public space, this workshop is directed by Gabo Barranco (AAAA) and is the joint endeavor of a foundation dedicated to contemporary art and an institute specialized in digital production techniques. The objective is the following: to create conscience of the possibilities that art and technology can bring together through the creation of a show inspired in the City itself.
Theoretical and practical workshop which seeks experimentation by using sounds captured by transducers around Mexico City; this in order to create pieces using urban life itself. The subjects will be setup for live shows and some techniques for processing analogue signals in the digital world.
This workshop is for people with or without previous experience in sound processes. Eager for knowledge and with a bias for electronic music, sound experimentation, audio production, synthesis or producers on the look for new ventures.
FULL QUOTA: the selected participants to take the workshop will be notified by email.
