What does Hip Hop owe to the 1930’s “Wizard of Waukesha”– Les Paul? Follow that lick through popular music history and find out!
**Sampling Across Genres: Introducing Young Musicians to Sample Based Music Production Using Logic Pro.**
Wednesday January 26
Instructor: APPU KRISHNAN
Much of today’s popular music uses sampling technology from a variety of musical genres. Classic early examples include: The Winstons, Queen, David Bowie and the Mellotron. Fastforward to 2011 students will be introduced to current artists who are modern pioneers in sampling technology, including Kanye West, Daft Punk, Dr Dre.
Students will be shown how music from the 60’s or 70’s from an audio recording (CD) can be imported into Logic software, edited, synced and then used in a brand new song. During the workshop, students will be invited up to the stage to Beat Box or sing into the computer. The recorded student performance is then sliced up and looped into a rhythm track, custom drum kit or melodic sampler instrument playable from the MIDI keyboard.
