Sounds and Samples

Sampling and Sounds 2 day Course

29th & 30th October 2018 10am-3pm / £20 per person

For ages 11-17

Sound is all around us in every area of our lives and we often don’t pay attention to what can be used to make unique, inspiring and interesting music. To become a successful artist in the music industry can be difficult and to stand out from the crowd you need to be unique and original.

We would like to invite you to attend the Sampling and Sounds course at DJ School UK led by tutor and DJ Dan De Lissandri and international DJ and producer Tristan Da Cunha.

The outcomes of the course are for you to:

  • develop an understanding of how to use sampling to make interesting and unique music
  • learn how to use music production software and hardware to manipulate sounds and make new music
  • develop creative, musical and technological skills
  • collaborate with other musicians and producers
  • develop artistic and creative skills and learn about music in an alternative way
  • try new ideas, concepts and techniques
  • take part in positive and inspirational activities

We will teach you about the different ways to sample music and sound to make music. We will look at a range of sources such as films/documentaries, sound libraries, sound FX and the sounds that are all around us. A key part of the course is for you to listen to unfamiliar genres, something they you not normally listen to including music from our past.

All you need to bring with you is comfortable clothes, a packed lunch, music you would like to sample and lots of ideas.
