Shifting Narratives: Rap and Youthwork.

Vocal Workshop: Female voice – Is there such a thing?

Study together the social construction of female/male voice. Are voices either high clear and soft or deep, dark and powerful? What‘s gender got to do with it? Find ways to use your voice in a diverse way using vocal technique, microphones and mixer. With Iris Kosonen

Combining acoustic and virtual instruments:Zeina Azouqah is a composer and sound designer whose creative endeavours have taken her across genres and media, exploring the interstitial realms between acoustically produced music, sampling and virtual instruments. In this workshop, she shows how she customises and combines instruments NI’s Komplete library into her work as a songwriter and sound designer. She will walk the participants through a couple of sessions to show how the elements combine to make up the whole as well as delve into details about the instrument settings.
