Electronic Music Production Workshop
Electronic Music Production Workshops for young people
Where: Griffith Regional Art Gallery
When: Tuesday 23 January
The Ironing Maidens is a live electronic music performance art piece which explores the topics of domestic labour, technology and the history of women in electronic music. The instruments used are traditional irons and ironing boards that have been adapted and built to create sound and effect triggers for the music and the visuals of the show. This performance will take place at a Griffith Laundromat (TBC) followed by a public workshop at the Gallery.
In October 2017, The Ironing Maidens received a grant from Create NSW with which to tour 7 NSW regional centres and utilise the town’s main laundromat as an experimental, interactive performance space. The performance will be accompanied by a public workshop which will cover the topics of EMP, basic Ableton Live software skills, electronic instrument creation and the history of women in electronic music. This workshop will be open to members of the public and will be an inclusive environment - female supportive, disability accessible, indigenous supportive, LGBTI, queer and trans friendly and open to young people from 16 – 30 years.
