On June 12th, Omni Sound Project is partnering with Novation to present the Sound Design with Synthesis Workshop. Novation is a British company designing innovative tools for electronic music-makers. Novation specialises in designing synthesisers, grid-based and keyboard controllers and grooveboxes – technology that translates ideas into reality, channelling artistic energy to create new music. Its Launchpad range of grid-based controllers continues to fundamentally shape the electronic music of tomorrow. From the serious hardware-oriented music-maker looking for new inspiration, to electronic music fans looking to start a journey into making their own tunes, Novation seeks to inspire.
Omni Sound Project workshops are designed to allow participants to explore a topic more deeply and collaborate on a working project to gain real world experience. In this hands-on event, composer Meghan Rose Scott will guide students in an exploration of using synthesis for sound design.
In the first half of the workshop, Meg will review the basics of synthesis and its common tools. She will then teach students how to create a “sound palette”, take inspiration from other sounds, recreate sound effects, and experiment with plugins.
In the second half of the workshop, students will collaborate on using sound design to score a film scene using the Novation Peak. As always, collaboration will take place in a welcoming, encouraging atmosphere and participation is always voluntary.
Omni Online classes are open to all genders. This class requires attendees to have a basic understanding of sound design and using synthesizers. Users of any DAW are welcome.
