Hello modular newbies!
SchneidersLaden is holding a Modular Beginner Workshop every Thursday at 6pm – participation is free!
Here is what you can expect:
“Our goal is that you can confidently make your own first patch afterwards and have a good time and also meet like-minded people! Although we are nerds we won’t get too technical. Along the way we will show you basic patch techniques, the workings of our showroom, as well as tell you some stories about the history of (modular) synths and the ever evolving Eurocrack scene.
Feel free to come by even if you do not want to participate in the workshop, as the showroom will be open longer on Thursdays and you can get drinks at the bar. Not only when starting out with modular synthesizers this is a nice occasion to get some advice by us or other experienced guests, or share your knowledge with us! Try out some patches and have a drink or two.
See you soon! Every Thursday at 6pm at the SchneidersLaden Showroom for a workshop – or every weekday between noon – 7pm.”
The weekly workshops at SchneidersLaden are suitable for musicians, artists and everyone interested in the generation of electronic sounds.
No knowledge required – the workshops are free of charge and open to everyone interested.
The idea behind these workshops is to cover basic technical concepts – needed to understand the workings of modular synthesizers and synthesis in general and to enable the participants to make their first own patch and start creating electronic music.
The modular synthesizer scene is a vibrant, supportive and creative space where new forms of art are experienced and boundaries of electronic music have been pushed. This new (old) way of creating electronic sounds had to be learned and artists around the globe have shown that it is possible to create a global community that shares ideas, skills and knowledge without focusing on profit.
Small centers of encounter and exchange, such as SchneidersLaden in Berlin, played a significant role in this development. Every week Modular Beginner Workshops are held here. The workshops offer the opportunity to overcome the first obstacles on the way to understanding this extraordinary instrument. At the same time, the place offers the possibility of exchange, getting to know each other and making music together.
