Trusted teacher: Who is this workshop for? For anyone curious about sound, all music, music in general, who wants to manufacture, build, examine ... (from 12 or 13 years old). Do you need to know music theory? No. But familiarity with music of various styles can be of great help. DJ? "Electro" music? No ! We will not learn here to be a DJ or to compose “dance-music”, “electro” music in the commonly understood sense, not even songs. Do you need to know the computer? It is better if it is, but learning can be done at the same time as musical research. Is this course a software learning course? No. I give the basics (only on Logic Pro X or Garageband) to be able to compose but I do not teach the deep use of software. Is it necessary to have a computer? Yes ! A "workshop" rather than a class? The course takes the form of a practical workshop, listening sessions, criticism of works. By computer? Everything happens on a computer once sound elements of all kinds have been recorded. Editing, transformation, mixing on software designed for this. No software required. The proposed route can be adapted to any multitrack sequencing software. The computer is only a tool, it is the composer who makes the music. Practically what do we do? The composer works “from the sounds” that he has most often recorded himself. He chooses them, assembles them, deforms them, mixes them according to his project, at will. of his intuition, his ideas and desires, gradually builds a music. For those who wish and need it, exercises are offered which allow to approach at the same time techniques of realization and precise musical proposals. Composition / Invention It is not a question of declaring themselves all composers, but of affirming that we can all ask ourselves composers' questions, with both seriousness and imagination. To confront the game of a free invention. What musical orientation? What style ? This is a “musical research” process: seek to invent a music beyond traditional values - note pitches, regular pulsations, instrumental timbres - without forbidding all that. A “music of sounds”, in the broadest possible sense, a “music of all sounds “as opposed to what one could obviously call too simplified“ a music of notes ”. This choice, which apparently seems to shake up musical uses, is nevertheless part of a tradition of more than a century and rich in a repertoire that is too little known and which has had various names: - Electroacoustic music - Concrete music - Acousmatic music - Contemporary music Finally, we each have a precious tool to never forget: our ear, and a fascinating and rewarding job to lead, questioning about oneself.

Trusted teacher: If you are looking to get started with Computer Aided Production, you have come to the right place! A musician who has always been passionate about electronic music and also a guitar teacher, I have a pedagogue spirit and I like being able to pass on my knowledge. I like to provide a relaxed atmosphere and I can adapt to a lot of different kinds of electronic music. This course is aimed at musicians and those interested in learning to compose music entirely by computer, from scratch. I established a lesson plan allowing to start from the minimum and thus to go over all the important stages, from the composition to the arrangement, until the mixing and the publication of the pieces or of a final project. Beginner to advanced level, the training includes: -Ableton Live software basics (Workflows, configuration, interface & shortcuts) -Basics of musical production (Write a melody and a chord progression, structure a song according to the style chosen) -MIDI basics (Use of VSTs, insertion and configuration of external instruments) - Sound Design basics (ADSR basics, use of layering for virtual instruments, sample processing) -Using audio effects (Review of available effects and how to integrate and use them effectively) -Learn to mix a song and / or a complete project and prepare the mastering of the latter (Gain staging, spatialization, frequency sweep and use of compressors, mixing templates and use of a reference track) -Publication of projects (basic mastering, study on the different broadcasting and music streaming services) The goal is to acquire the right basic knowledge in a short time, in order to be able to be autonomous on the creation, the publication and the management of your own projects. I teach the lessons, either: -At my home directly, I have a small studio in my apartment, not far from downtown Montreal; -At your home, the costs are a little higher due to transport; -Remote by webcam with sound and screen sharing I give a first lesson of one hour at the start of the process so that I can take the time to discuss your project and determine the objectives together. Contact me directly to discuss your expectations! Alexis
