Future Black Electronic Artist Camp: 2019 Edition
Spencer Haney (College of Engineering)
Over two day-long workshops in the summer of 2019, a group of ten high school students from Southeast Michigan public schools will participate in an intensive electronic music program taught by SMTD and Engineering students and alumni, alongside professional black electronic music artists. Teachers that represent marginalized identities will bring critical perspectives of race, gender and queer identity to the context of electronic music performance. Curriculum will include an introduction to music technology as well as introductory programming concepts. We will cover:
• Digital Audio Workstation software (DAWs)
• recording engineering
• programming with Processing and/or pureData
• music composition
Each day of workshops will conclude with a presentation or performance from a practicing black electronic musician with a following question and answer session for students.
