Performing Electronic Music – Workshop with Maya Shenfeld
Composer Maya Shenfeld hosts a workshop for artists at Semibreve festival. The workshop connects the theme of her work with the creative use of technology in a performative context, and provide an opportunity for knowledge exchange with artists interested in experimental sound practices.
What actually happens on stage when musicians perform live electronic music? How is this experienced by the performer, and the audience? In this workshop, Maya Shenfeld will demystify live electronic music performance. Shenfeld will break down common techniques, setups, workflows, talk about musical approaches to sculpting the dynamic arc of a show, and outline steps for preparing an electronic set. The session extends beyond technicalities, inviting participants to reflect on ways of embodying the performance, various stage setups, and lights. During the second half of the workshop, participants will be invited to experiment with live processing, and develop ideas for their own live performance.
Max number of participants: 20
Requirements: This workshop welcomes participants at every skill level and users of any DAW. Participants are invited to bring whatever they use for making music, i.e., a computer, sampler, instruments, and/or a work in progress sample, song, or whatever they might like to experiment with. Please bring headphones.
