Sonic Experiments with Brian Borcherdt
Friday March 26, 2021  12pm
Music Workshop / Class Community

Escape to Ross Creek this winter for a unique and creative experience in one of our Weekend Workshop Retreats- including the incredible Brian Borcherdt, who will be bringing you along on some Sonic Experiments!
"For my workshop/ creative class I’d like to discuss ideas, philosophies, and techniques. Following that I’d like to demonstrate how to apply these in practice, giving insights to some of the experimental and improvisational approaches I’ve used in my performances on stages like Glastonbury, Coachella, and Lollapalooza. Hopefully this will provide a good level of motivation for us as we all try our hand on some found objects, sound mixers, drum machines etc. It’ll be a challenge and obstacle to figure out ways that we as listeners can communicate, and more importantly how the instruments can communicate with one another.

Though the emphasis won’t be on creating a final product/ song etc, we will record key moments during the workshop with the goal of listening back and discussing. In the end there might be a song- or at least an exciting document of our performances. From there we can look at post- production: how to edit and sculpt once the initial ideas have taken shape."
