The idea of being a music producer is often intimidating – who has money for a studio with a giant mixing board, a sound-treated room and even the top software costs more than PlayPlay’s car. But there are ways to make music for free using just a laptop. In this two hour hands-on music production workshop, PlayPlay will teach attendees how to make rhythms using just a laptop and a free web-based music making program, Soundtrap. Expect to learn basic music production theory, how to utilize loops, how to make beats from scratch, and how to arrange the elements of a song in a cohesive way.

Attendees should bring a laptop with the Google Chrome browser installed if they want to participate in the hands-on portion, but everyone is welcome to listen in!

More about PlayPlay

PlayPlay is a DJ, producer, music scholar and activist interested in local music scenes, dance floor dynamics, queer theory, and media studies. They have been teaching DJ’ing and music production for several years, most recently through the UNC-Chapel Hill Music Department and Building Beats (NYC). With a particular investment in mentoring women and gender non-conforming DJs / producers, PlayPlay has held workshops at festivals such as Moogfest, for organizations such as Girls Rock NC, and at various colleges & universities. A long-term artist-in-residence at Flux, PlayPlay debuted their soundscape installation this past year, focusing on the history of club music. In 2018, they released music on labels such as Knightwerk Records, Cybersonic LA, and Worst Behavior Records, and have two EPs scheduled for release this year.
