Turn your house into a musical instrument in a two-part workshop with artist and musician Lucy Cheesman, as part of Site Gallery's online WEB/SITE programme.
In the first session (9th May) you will learn the basics of code and how to make music with open source software FoxDot. In this session Lucy will give you samples you need to make your own melodies.
You will then collect your own samples using the sound recorders on your mobile phone from around your house. You will receive worksheets to give you examples to get you started.
In the second session (16th May) you'll import the sounds you've collected into your own compositions.
By the end of the workshop, participants will learn the basics of coding, sampling and be able to make their own songs and melodies.
Book your free ticket via Eventbrite – please only get tickets if you can attend both sessions.
These workshops are open to all ages and family collaborations are encouraged, however younger participants (8-12 years old) may need support to take part.
Access to a basic Mac or Windows computer that is connected to or has a built in ‘qwerty’ keyboard. All software will run on most machines made 2010 and onwards.
You will receive a guide on what software you need to install before the workshops begin. To help support participants who are struggling with the installation, Site will be running 1-1 tech support sessions over Zoom to help you get up and running.
