Unleash Your Inner DJ With Audacity
Event sponsored by Caktus Group and run by TechGirlz Volunteers.
Have you ever wanted to be a DJ? Using audio engineering software, a little bit of music theory, and your own creativity, you can now create your own trendy track. This workshop guides students through the thrilling process of leaving their personal mark on a piece of popular music by utilizing professional remixing strategies.
Students will use Audacity software to transform popular songs by applying elements of music theory and supplementing given material with additional beats, rhythms and embellished chord progressions. Upon completion of their masterpieces, students will share their musical creations with their classmates and then take home their original arrangements.
Note: Some street parking is available. Parking at Durham Centre lot across from the Durham Convention Center recommended. Workshop room is at the bottom of the stairs. Please bring a laptop with Audacity downloaded. Snacks will be provided.
Please send an email to Erica Boyles if you have any questions. Thanks!
