>> PART 1 – AUDIO
Jamming with Ninja – Workshop by Matt Black
Duration: 3 hours
Introducing himself and his work with Coldcut and Ninja Tune- recognised as pioneers in the areas of sampling, DJing and audiovisual club art – Matt examines the evolution of these forms into today’s electronic music and art landscape. He will demonstrate the latest incarnation of Coldcut’s software ideas, the iOS remix app Ninja Jamm.
Participants are then invited to work with Matt to create a custom ‘Tunepack’, ie make a tune in the Ninja Jamm interactive music format, from their own materials which can be existing audio or fresh material recorded in the workshop e.g. workstation clip creation, or live ‘on the spot’ recordings of beat-boxing, percussion, singing.
The Tunepack will be made available as a download for the participants to jamm with, use, improve and distribute (on a share-alike basis) after the workshop.
Participants ideally need to bring some of the following:
– audio samples in wav or aiff format (we will use 140/70 bpm, in Key of C) on pen drive or other storage media
– laptop/other device with music software on
– musical instruments of any kind
– Wav/mp3 sound recorder e.g. smart phone, Zoom.
