Tape Looping Workshop w/ Alex Lempert - Saturday 25 September - 12:00-14:00
Tape looping - a creative way to generate infinite, sprawling sounds that are completely analog and require no digital technology. A tape loop is a cassette tape that’s been modified to play in an infinite loop. Participants will have a fun, hands-on workshop taking apart old cassettes and recreating new sounds with the tape looping technique. Apply here.
Embodied voice Workshop w/ Xenia Taniko - Sunday 26 September - 13:00-15:00
A vocal improvisation workshop to access and reclaim your voice. In this workshop we will use our body to connect to our voice and activate our bodies with our voices.

No experience required, all bodies and abilities are welcome. Apply here.
