This Friday, March 13th 2015, I will be leading a workshop at Dubspot LA in Hollywood titled “Algorithmic Composition for Drums”. It is free to all who would like to attend.
“Explore advanced methods for drum programming using current software (Kontakt, Maschine, Reaktor, Ableton) to compose complex rhythms and variations with interesting sounds. These methods de-emphasize note-specific editing, instead focusing on creating systems of signal routing to achieve a unique, semi-predictable performance. Much as writers and composers of Jazz, Rock and other genres have counted on musicians to contribute to the composition process, producers of computer music can use algorithmic composition techniques to fill this same roll.”
