More Info: The Bleeps+Loops Electronic Musicians’ Camp will equip students with the skills necessary to create unique compositions and pursue successful careers as music producers, sound designers, and electronic artists. Campers will also learn strategies and gain skills that will allow them to effectively collaborate with other musicians, an increasingly important skill among modern music producers.
Students will have the opportunity to explore a wide variety of musical genres with guidance from experienced instructors and musicians.
Students will get rare and valuable hands-on experience using one of the most popular instruments making its way into studios and onto stages today: the modular synthesizer. They will also have the opportunity to perform using real analog synthesizers and drum machines, as well as powerful software synths and drum racks.
By the end of the camp, students will have made their very own custom audio sample pack to use in future compositions. They will have the opportunity to release their track on the Bleeps + Loops label, which will be distributed to all major streaming services.
This camp is ideal for students who are interested in pursuing Music Production and/or synthesis as a career, and they will leave the camp with a great start on a portfolio that can be used in college or internships applications.
