Live Modular Techniques

Performing live with a Modular Synthesizer may seem daunting. We will focus on refining your artistic vision and discuss how to progress beyond concepts to fully formed sets.

We will explore different performance styles, genres and approaches to developing the stage aesthetic that you want to cultivate. Attention will be given to module selection and case layout, as well as improvisation techniques, boundaries and safety nets.

Week 1 – Focus on Aesthetics

Week 2 – Compartmentalization

Week 3 – Improvisation Within Boundaries

Week 4 – Knowing Your Instrument

Class will meet online for 1 hour via live Skype or Hangouts session weekly, at a time determined based on student availability. Your instructor will deliver a 40-50 minute lecture, with the remainder of the hour spent answering questions submitted via text chat in the session. Classes are dynamically tailored to the students setup, and start as soon as they are filled.
