A monthly free-to-all electronic music mini-workshop and collaborative jam session held in the Gray Area lobby.

Gray Area, ZERO1, and Crowbar Corner host this 2hr session led by an instructor from the Crowbar Corner electronic music studios. Participants will expand their sonic horizons during a free hands-on workshop covering a different synthesis topic each session (drones, sequencing, sound design, etc.), then collaborate on a group jam that will propel the workshop sounds into the beyond! Participants are encouraged to bring their own electronic instrument or use one from the Grand Creative Resource Library (limited availability). Participants can also preview the instruments available from the Library and sign up to borrow one after the session. We have full modular systems, desktop synths and drum machines and a selection of Macbooks, iPads, midi controllers, and audio interfaces. The inaugural session on May 18th will be led by Ryan Smith, who in addition to teaching regular synthesis classes at Gray Area also plays in the band Caribou and makes techno music as Taraval. The workshop begins promptly at 6pm, followed by group jam time beginning at 7pm. There will be time at the end of the workshop for general questions and advice about synthesis. Please arrive in time to set up your instrument(s) before the jam begins.
