Unsound Festival: Electronic Music Workshop

 

Traditionally held in various cities throughout Poland, the Unsound Festival made its U.S. debut in New York City. Among the week-long schedule of live performances, DJ sets and workshops – I co-taught a 4-day Electronic Music Workshop for Kids hosted at Harvestworks. The kids created their own rhythm and noisemakers and learned about electronic audio amplification, effects and composition. I designed a lesson that taught the kids how to make four different kinetic sound instruments. They were later able to amplify and augment the sounds with equipment they learned about prior. The final day culminated in a live group performance at the concert venue – Le Poisson Rouge.
