Analog Synthesizer Workshop (Winter 2020)

7 Tuesdays: Jan 14 - Feb 25

Instructor: Michael Johnsen

Price: $225 members, $250 non-members

This class offers an introduction to the equipment and principles that lie at the mysterious roots of Electronic Music. Using the Arp Odyssey and the Pittsburgh Modular system, students will gain a hands-on understanding of the voltage-controlled synthesizer and basic studio technique including filters, oscillators, modulators, and "effects". Emphasis will be placed on basic principles, rather than on specific equipment, encouraging self-sufficiency and resourcefulness.
