A monthly free-to-all electronic music workshop & collaborative jam session held in the Gray Area lobby.

Gray Area, ZERO1, and Crowbar Corner are proud to present Synth Sessions, a free hands-on workshop and group jam open to all levels to expand your sonic horizons.

Every month, participants will learn about a new synthesis topic (drones, sequencing, sound design, etc.), then collaborate on a group jam that will propel the workshop sounds into the beyond!

Participants are encouraged to bring their own electronic instrument or use one from the Grand Creative Resource Library (limited availability). Participants can also preview the instruments available from the Library and sign up to borrow one after the session. We have full modular systems, desktop synths and drum machines and a selection of Macbooks, iPads, midi controllers, and audio interfaces.

The workshop begins promptly at 6pm, followed by group jam time beginning at 7pm. There will be time at the end of the workshop for general questions and advice about synthesis. Please arrive in time to set up your instrument(s) before the jam begins.

This Month's Theme is Video Synthesis

This Month's Instructors

André Williams and Lindsay Gauthier work together in multimedia, film and audio/video synthesis under the moniker of SubtleShift. An example of their work was a series of three music videos for the record label RVNG out of NYC for label artist Diatom Deli. Individually, they also create art as Occubus Jive and Shylon. They are interested in the liminal intersection of energy and perception at the cultural level.

The Grand Creative Resource Library is a lending library offering the tools needed to create electronic music and sound art. Paired with access to workshops, labs, incubators, and events produced by the contributing partners, this collective resource will eliminate barriers to creation at the forefront of art and technology.

The Grand Creative Resource Library is a collaboration between Crowbar Corner, ZERO1, and Gray Area.
