May: Youth Drop-In Program: Electronic Music with Jace Clayton

NYC public school students between the ages of 13–18 are invited to spend their Thursday afternoons, from 3–6PM, at Eyebeam. Each month will feature a series of free hands-on workshops, starting at 4PM, where students will have the opportunity to work with different open-source software programs as used by artists and technologists.

Thursdays in May: Electronic Music Production with Eyebeam Resident Jace Clayton
Musician and writer Jace Clayton (aka DJ/rupture) will introduce students to electronic music production and sound design using a variety of open source and inexpensive audio software. Students will learn the basics of sampling, synthesis, beat programming, and FX processing as they develop a composition of their own.

NOTE: This is a free program and students are welcome to drop in without RSVP'ing. Computer access is first come first serve. In the case of too many students, students will be invited to team-up and collaborate on shared projects. Students who drop-in cannot be guaranteed a computer and are strongly encouraged to RSVP.
