Reel to Real: A Performing Arts Technology Community Engaged Project

Tape Machine Workshop: Part 1

April 19, 2024 | 9:30 am

Duderstadt Center
Audio Studio A

Free - no tickets required

This is a PAT 315 (Diversity in Music Technology) community engaged project aiming to provide basic knowledge and hands-on experience operating tape machines. It will focus on musique concrète – an art form based on physical sounds and a physical editing process – encouraging experimental approaches to composition and sound while reexamining its history and legacy. Presented by the Audio Engineering Society and Lukas Nepmuceno.

Open to anyone interested in analog recording/ music production. No experience needed! Lunch and refreshments will be served both days.

April 12 – DEMO: PAT Professor Sile O’Modhrain will demonstrate tape machine operation and production techniques, and will be available for Q&A.

April 19 – HANDS-ON: Tom Bray will guide students on applying the content demonstrated in the first session to construct a music concrète piece together.

While attendance for both sections is encouraged, it isn’t required, which hopefully provides some flexibility. Both sessions run 9:30 am – 12:30 pm at Audio Studio A, Duderstadt Center.

If you’re interested at all, please RSVP here:

PAT 315 Instructor: Dr. Zeynep Özcan. Supported in part by the EXCEL Enterprise Fund.
