Various Approaches to Looping Audio
w/ Laura Jane Beach and Melissa Gan

Thursday, November 23rd, 7pm

Are you interested in looping as a form of artistic expression? Join musicians Memelissa Gan and Laura Jane Beach in an interactive workshop that covers the basics of looping audio. From ‘fat beats’ to haunting soundscapes, four-chord pop hits to textural masterpieces, this workshop will showcase the versatility of looping sound as a means of creative exploration. No musical experience necessary! All gear (and light refreshments) will be provided.

Twin Voices is is an indie electro-folk project with roots in the Ottawa Valley and wings in Saskatoon, Toronto, and Montreal. Laura Beach crafts a dark and lovely sound with live looping of violin, voice, percussion and guitar. Their performance is equal parts stunning simplicity and playful complexity. Laura has played over 100 venues across Canada – from Prince Edward Island to Vancouver Island, Whitehorse to Moose Jaw. They have had the opportunity to share bills and stages with a number of notable artists, including Bruce Cockburn, the late Gord Downey, and the Deep Dark Woods.

Melissa Gan is a music teacher, artist, performer, and local settler to Treaty 6 Territory. They perform under the name respectfulchild, a solo project of ambient experimental violin. Their focus is on exploring the possibilities of creating soundscapes with minimal hardware, valuing textures and palettes over special effects and gear.
