About the Artists:

Gamelan Bike Bike draws its musical inspiration from Bali, Indonesia and its raw materials from the scrap metal bins of Vancouver. In 2012, instrument maker George Rahi collected over 100 discarded bicycle frames to build the instruments. The colorful metal scraps, configured into a series of metallophones instruments, created a platform for experimental gamelan music on the West Coast. The ensemble has presented performances with the Western Front, Vancouver New Music, and the Vancouver Folk Music Festival and in 2017 released Hi-Ten, a collection of original works with the Indonesia-based art collective and label Insitu Recordings.

  • Fri, May 1 – Sun, May 3: Soundwalk of Saturna Island May 2nd
  • Thu, May 7 18:00 – 22:00: Intro to Synthesizers for Women & Non-Binary Folks
    ** An advanced version of this workshop runs on Thu May 28: https://advanced-synth.eventbrite.ca
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Intimidated by all those knobs on your synthesizer? Let recording engineer Victoria Gibson help you get started!

    4 hours total // , or with any VIVO Producer Membership (+GST)

    Thu May 7, 6pm-10pm

    Extended subsidy available for this workshop. See registration page for link to application.

    No experience necessary.

    This hands-on introduction is designed for women and non-binary folks who want to play with synthesizers but are just beginning their explorations. Curious but don’t know where to start? This is for you!

    It combines basic theory and practice to introduce you to audio synthesis. Learn how to connect your equipment and understand signal flow. Find out how to identify each type of synthesizer and what sounds you can expect it to produce. Discover what type of synth makes the sounds you like by exploring the presets. Start to shape the sounds to create your own voice. This workshop will let you approach any synth with confidence because you’ll understand the controls, dials, and sliders and what they are doing.

    The necessary equipment is provided, but you are encouraged to also bring your own synthesizer, headphones, audio equipment, and laptop with software, and learn how to make them work during the workshop. This is what makes this workshop special — Victoria will meet you where you’re at! The focus will be on making meaningful sounds using your own ears and whatever is on hand.

    Responding to participants’ needs, the format for this workshop will include a lot of open time for you to ask questions and try your hand at experimenting with synthesis. Victoria will provide technical and creative assistance.

    Bring a USB memory stick or other external storage device if you want to take home any sounds that you might record.

    If you already have experience and are excited about learning the science behind the sounds, sign up for the advanced workshop: https://advanced-synth.eventbrite.ca
