Music Improv Sessions

Reimagining Percussion with Pedals #1

In this session, skilled drummer and engineer, Dustin Ragland, will show you how to run acoustic, percussive instruments into effects pedals to design innovative sounds on the fly.

Working in pairs for practical experience, you’ll gain first-hand knowledge of novel instruments and approaches to making electronic music, and ways of connecting equipment for new workflows. It’s also a chance to collaborate and engage with fellow music makers in a singular setting.

No prior experience is required to participate in this workshop, and you don’t need any special equipment. You are welcome to bring any 9v effects pedals.
