Here is an introduction from Lee on the workshops:

Hello Everyone!

My name is Lee Gilboa, I am a first year MFA student in the Sound Art department, and also a Digital Centers Intern at the Music & Arts Library. I did my undergraduate degree at Berklee College of Music where I majored in Electronic Production and Design and Jazz Composition, and got to work on lots of different DAWs, and to spend lots of hours in recording studios. My strong suits are Ableton Live, Pro Tools and Logic for DAWs and Finale for notation and I am also pretty fluent in Max/MSP.

I will be holding group workshops on different topics in the library through the summer, and also some one-on-one sessions may be possible!

What will you need?

  • Laptop
  • a MIDI controller (recommended but optional)

And whatever else that helps you when learning! I usually need to write down everything rather than do it on my laptop - so whatever works for you will work for me!
