In this workshop, we will experiment with magnetic tape as a tool for composition, performance and improvisation. Focusing on lo-fi, somatic and experiential methods, we will cover some basic approaches to using tape, including making your own cassette loops from fresh or pre-recorded tape, tape manipulation, echo and phase techniques. 

Open to all abilities, no experience necessary. Limited pre-spliced cassette tape loops available upon request.

Doreen Girard is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist working with sound, installation and expanded cinema, and was a cofounder of the ngtvspc and Bent Light artist collectives. She performs solo, and with the electro-acoustic piano duo, Burden, as well as in a number of experimental and minimal sludge projects. Girard’s approach focuses on experimentation of the resonant and refractive properties of glass, wood, string and metal, aiming to activate the participants’ awareness of their perceptual field.
