Synth School at Footscray Community Arts Centre

What's the difference between Moog and Buchla? Why is analog vs digital such a big deal (or is it?)? What does this button even do? Learn all about synthesizers and other electronic music hardware in Sound School's free 8 week course. Learn about analog and digital synthesis, controlled voltage, MIDI, drum machines, sequencing, sampling, circuit bending, effects pedals, how to build your own synthesizer, and take a field trip to MESS Ltd, Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio. Guiding us through the course will be guest facilitators including Emah Fox, InfraGhosts, Yumgod, and Scumwitch.

No musical background necessary! This course aims to demystify synthesizers and music hardware, with an emphasis on collective learning, and learning through play
