Skronktronic 34

November 25 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm

Special edition SKRONKTRONIC, more details will come soon but we wanted to get this up so you can save the date!
This time we’ll be starting off with a workshop by Jake Williams which you can participate in. Further details below but you will need a smart phone and be willing to download an app. This will be followed by a performance by the workshop group as well as Jake and sets by your host The Oneirologist and CERPNTXT. Likely will add another act, keep your eyes peeled.
Shazam Walks Listening Party & DJ Workshop
How does music shape the urban soundscape? How is DJing a deep listening practice? Can we learn new ways of relating to the urban environment through listening & playing?
You will take part in a listening and response session using field recordings of music playing from mobile phones and portable sound systems in public spaces. Then we will see how these audio materials can be used for creative DJing. You will learn some basic techniques in a free digital DJ app on your phone or tablet, and explore playing and listening. At the end we will have a short, collaborative DJ jam session. There will be some hardware DJ controllers that work with the app available to play with.
Ahead of the session, you will be asked to download and install a free DJ app on your phone or tablet and collect some field recordings.
Jake Williams leads this workshop informed by Ultra-red’s sonic activism, Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening and his own DJ practice.
