FREE! Beginners Live Sound Workshops

Supported by the Women in Sound/Women on Sound Network and The Goldsmiths Annual Fund

Tuesday 13th June, 6pm and 8pm

Goldsmiths University of London, Richard Hoggart Building, Room 167

These entry level live sound workshops will focus on the basics of live sound engineering. Each workshop will cover setting up, running sound, troubleshooting, and packing down after a gig and will feature a live band to work with. This workshop is useful for artists looking to develop both their technical understanding and confidence during a soundcheck, and also for anyone interested in getting into sound engineering. The overall aim is to get all those participating to the level where they could happily run sound for their own DIY gig.

They will be run by artists, producers and sound engineers Francine Perry and Naomi Jackson, founder of the OMNII Collective. Francine is a producer and electronic composer currently working at Goldsmiths Music Studios, as well as freelance from her home studio. Naomi is a studio manager, live sound engineer and freelance sound designer, currently working out of Dalston Studios and her home studio.

This workshop is free and open to all, currently in education or not. We’re keen to encourage the participation of generally under-represented groups in this area, and to foster balanced participation 50% of places will be prioritised for those participants who identify as female, non-binary or gender non-conforming.

Spaces are limited so please register in advance. Email events@wiswos.com if you’d like to sign up, specifying if you’d like to be in the 6pm or 8pm group (or if you have no preference), and with the subject title WISWOS LIVE SOUND REGISTRATION. If you would like one of the places reserved for those who identify as female, non-binary or gender non-conforming, please indicate this in your email.

Goldsmiths University of London, Richard Hoggart Building, Room 167

Liz Helman is a London-based multi-disciplinary artist working across time-based media, including sound, photography and video. As a self-taught composer, she manipulates her own recorded and found sound, constructing atmospheric sound pieces, that explore the psychological and emotional attachment to place and dwelling. Journeying between recollection and reality, swopping super8 for mobile phone, fragmenting and layering image and sound phone, fragmenting and layering image and sound to consider the experience of dislocation and displacement.

In this talk Liz Helman presents examples of her creative practice, and discusses the themes explored therein. It is free and open to all, and the talk will be followed by a drinks reception.

“Designing sensor-based interactions with machine learning” with Rebecca Fiebrink 

FREE! Workshop supported by the Women in Sound/Women on Sound Network and The Goldsmiths Annual Fund

Tuesday 27 June – 5-6.30 PM

Goldsmiths University of London, Richard Hoggart Building, Room 167

Come learn how to create live interactions between simple off-the-shelf sensors, sound, and image. We’ll use the Wekinator tool for interactive machine learning, which has been used by thousands of students across the world to create new interactions without programming. No programming or machine learning experience needed.

This workshop is free and open to all, currently in education or not. We’re keen to encourage the participation of generally under-represented groups in this area, and to foster balanced participation 50% of places will be prioritised for those participants those who identify as female, non-binary or gender non-conforming.
