You hear them every day. They’re a signal that you might choose to ignore, except when you’re running late. Church bells amplify across nearly every town in The Netherlands but have you ever considered their sonic potential? Join us for a workshop on November 30th as part of our Resonance program with the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision’s RE:VIVE initiative.
Resonance is a day of concerts, workshops, and discourse exploring new contexts in contemporary church music at Stevenskerk in Nijmegen. With this workshop you’ll gain access to archival recordings of church bells all over The Netherlands dating back to the 1950s and receive a crash course in sound design from SAE music production instructor Giacomo Piscitelli, who will teach you how to digitally manipulate recordings and integrate them into your own compositions.
Workshop attendees are free to the evening’s discourse and music program, which features performances from Kali Malone, NYX and Martijn Comes. Space is limited and participants will be accepted on a rolling application basis. Please fill in this form to apply: https://forms.gle/NfahGUDMkeFDvA6Z8
This workshop is intended for music beginner and intermediate music producers. You will need to bring your own laptop with DAW of your choice and headphones.
