Make your own sounds
Living Arts of Tulsa is hosting a “New Music” or “Musiq Concrete” seminar on Wednesday afternoons from 4-6 p.m., Feb. 18 to May 6. The beauty of this is that no musical background is required.
Dylan Aycock, of “The Doldrums” and numerous other local and regional music projects, hosts this foray into the newest of the new music. According to Living Arts, “participants will learn techniques of linear composition using various electronic devices such as loop stations, computers and outboard effects.” I have no idea what “outboard effects” are but it sounds like it could make some really cool sounds … or help you catch some sweet bass. You have been playing “Guitar Hero” or “Rock Band” all winter long; no one likes a cover band. Try doing something on your own for once. Bonus: After the course, all compositions will be compiled on a disc (vinyl would be swell, too) and sold through Living Arts.
