Drew Lamb: Sequencing Waves

I will talk about a passion of mine, creating electronic music with hardware synthesizers and drum machines. I have taken a journey into music creation that used to be frequented, but forgotten about in today’s day of advanced technology. This talk will include everything from my journey, my setup, pros and cons of this type of setup, and a demo of my creation process.

80s kid, retro gamer, bleep bloop creator, synthesizer tinkerer. I make retro-inspired electronic music with hardware.

Raylene Campbell: Improvising with Found Sound

Raylene (she/her/they/them) looks forward to sharing their passion for silence, listening, sound, and noise making. They’ll talk a bit about their creative process and past work, but will focus on demoing the (Ableton) Live set they use for improvised performance and do a bit of jamming to demonstrate some of the methods used for selecting and manipulating sound in real time.

Raylene Campbell is a sound artist who has embraced various creative practices including improvisation, composition, performance art, sound and image, public intervention, and Deep Listening. She’s studied and worked as a freelance artist in New York and Montreal, has a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College, and taught in the Department of Music at Concordia University. The focus of Raylene’s creative process involves explorations of acoustic ecology, psychogeography, media arts technology, and audience interactivity in both performance and installation environments.
