Aarhus Vocal Festival
2-5 June 2017

Laptop vs. Vocals

In this workshop, tech wizard Lars Rønne and vocal instructor Morten Kjær collaborate with all the participants on some fun, fascinating sound design that combines raw, untreated live singing with electronically manipulated sounds and beats.

How it works: Morten will teach short, simple vocal arrangements and sounds to the group, and this music will be recorded by Lars and transformed into beautiful electronic beats and soundscapes, using the computer program Ableton Live.

Everyone will be able to see how Lars works on a big screen. Once a blanket of sound has been created, everyone can sing new lyrics and melodies on top, creating a lush and very full arrangement. Everyone can be a part of this! No electronic experience is required, and it will be FUN and different!

Instructors: Morten Kjær and Lars Rønne
