Sound Designer Chloe Thompson will take participants through a hands on workshop specifically working with audio programming (Max) and Ableton alive to manipulate and spatialize sounds and how those can be used in a performative setting. This workshop is highly limited and is best for those with some experience with sound design or a keen interest.
About the Instructor
CHLOE ALEXANDRA THOMPSON
Chloe Alexandra Thompson is a sound designer and artist who composes works of sonic minimalism using audio programming software, and acoustic instruments. Focused on live performance and spatial intervention, Thompson engineers multi-channel interplays of psycho-acoustics, live processed field recordings, and isolated frequencies. Fascinated by digital technology’s seemingly endless possibilities for experimentation, Thompson routinely collaborates with other artists to explore new avenues for electronic creation.
