Loud and Clear STL, a Sonic Arts United initiative and Allied Media Projects sponsored project, is a 10-week program designed to support girls, and young women who have an interest in the sonic arts, by providing them with a safe space, and the technology to learn, create and share ideas.
Starting off with the physics of sound and signals, our girls learn how to define and demonstrate all that goes into sound creation. We will explore electricity by using the printed circuit board (PCB) of the Werkstatt by Moog as our guide. In the following weeks, participants are introduced to subtracted synthesis, sound design, midi, how to work with analog and digital tools by pairing the Werkstatt with the Ableton Push, and Live 9 software, investigate sonic branding, and development of their very own podcast episode.
The desired outcomes are to raise the self-esteem of participants, create bonds that foster mutual respect, and provide the necessary tools, training, and mentorship that shows girls and young women a career in the sonic arts, is an achievable career path for them to follow.
Fall session starts September 9th through November 18th and we are pleased to be instructing a couple sessions with Loren D!
