Transform Sounds into Music
Thursday November 25

Make music with Ah! Kosmos, who produces performative works based on spatial sounds. Listen to Başak while she talks about her creative process and the methods she uses to make music. Open GarageBand on a Mac, record spatial sounds, and mix them to tell a story with sounds. Make your sound/voice heard within the soundscape which will be made with the contribution of all the beats created by everyone.
