About
Norwegian DJ/producer Charlotte Bendiks offers a fun way of approaching music and to start understanding rhythms. In this short introduction to rhythm and music using the DJ's tools, kids learn how to count the beats in a track and how to mix two beatmatched tracks together on a DJ mixer. While a library of tracks will be prepared by Charlotte and gear will be provided, each participant should imagine their own stage name and be prepared to give a brief introduction of themselves to the group. During this introduction, participants get the change to try their voice on the mic with some special surprise effects.

FELD - Audiovisual Creation in Space
SHAPE Workshop with Ulf Langheinrich
29 April 2015 // 10h – 20h // Festspielhaus Hellerau
Workshop language: DE / EN
Workshop fee: 10€ / Limited to 10 participants

Workshop participants should have a beginner background in sound and be familiar with music software or hardware, and be able to create sustained sound in real time (which would not be the case with a rhythm-composing device or software that organises pre-recorded tracks only). Please bring your own laptops.
Interested participants should email Anja Henkel (anja@ctm-festival.de) by 10 April.

Info
A performance space filled with sound and image may be seen as a resonating matrix for aesthetic matter. This matter comes to life via parallel streams of sonic and light projections, where the specificity of instruments and interfaces significantly determine the matrix’s immediate sensory impact and thus the audience’s experience.

In this workshop, veteran artist Ulf Langheinrich will introduce basic strategies of his search to dissolve boundaries within and create uncertainty in audiovisual creation. Participants will develop a sonic texture and 3-dimenional sound field, and explore ways in which to animate it. The field will be experienced in qualities such as consistency, current, spatial distinction, and timing.
