The final social of 2016 took place at DINA on 1st December at 6.30. The group shared news of lots of exciting events – Maria DJed at the Peddlers Market as marialoco and Emily J played at Foodhall. DINA hosted the Dutty Bass night organised by Jaguar Bingham (who lead our DJing workshop) amongst others. The group also shared information on promoters booking techno gigs in Sheffield.

Emily talked about her work with the group, and explained some of her techniques, which involve the use of acoustic and electronic wind instruments, Ableton Live, and specialised lighting effects. Find out more about Emily on her website.

We also reflected on the recent series of workshops held in Sheffield as part of the Catalyst Festival of Creativity, and discussed potential topics for future sessions including:

  • Lighting/DMX
  • Stagecraft
  • Managing anxiety around performance
  • Audacity
  • Max
  • Reaper
  • Podcasting
  • VJing
  • How to collaborate
  • Promotion
  • Microphones
  • Visuals
  • Studio techniques

Looking forward to seeing everyone again in the new year! The January social will be held on Thursday 5th January at 6.30pm.
