About the workshop:
This semester join PhD candidate Brooks Frederickson in a deep dive into the industry-standard recording and performing software Ableton Live. Throughout the semester we’ll look closely at Ableton’s robust built-in synths, drum samples, effects and utilities. The ideas and concepts discussed at these workshops will be designed not only to teach you the specifics of Albeton’s software, but to teach you the fundamentals of digital sound synthesis and manipulation, which can be applied to any other DAW - Logic, Reaper, Garageband, etc. Students do not need to own Ableton, as the Ruby’s computer lab is outfitted with computers that have Ableton already installed on them.

About the instructor:

Brooks Frederickson is a musician and artist based in Durham, NC. A fourth year PhD student in Music Composition at Duke, Brooks’ research focuses on the community and collaborative aspects of music and art making. His music has been performed internationally, used in films, and danced to.

Recent recording projects include his first full length album "Small Works" released through New Amsterdam Records' Windmill Series, his "steroidally hard-driving, rock-influenced" (NY Times) piece Undertoad on Bearthoven’s Cantaloupe Records release “Trios”. Brooks' music can also be heard on Consortium5's recording "Tangled Pipes" out on the UK Nonclassical record label, and on A/B Duo’s “Variety Show."
