Tools for Creativity Workshop - RSVP Form

The Boston Center for the Arts and the Northeastern University Center for the Arts and College of Arts, Media and Design are hosting two workshops on Tools & Technology for Creativity, lead by Northeastern Assistant Professor of Acting and Directing, Matthew Gray.

WORKSHOP #1
Monday, October 21 at 6:30pm
Designing, Controlling and Triggering Audio in Live Performance
Tools for Creativity workshop with Matthew Gray
Location: Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont Street
Free, RSVP required

The workshop is an 'add-on' for those already using basic audio software for live performance such as QLab, ProTools, and StudioOne. The aim of the workshop is to increase design knowledge and problem solving by working through 10 cues of ever-increasing complexity. The workshop covers layering audio cues using workstation and performance software, editing the tops and tails of cues, creating looping musical phrases within cue sequences, and triggering cues with a keyboard key or another cue within a sequence. There will be 5 Teaching Assistants on hand to answer specific questions, and participants are encouraged to bring in projects they are working on or have worked on in the past

Matthew Gray is a director, actor, educator, and sound designer. In 1997 he received his directing degree from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). He then went on to teach and direct at LAMDA for eight years, directing over 30 plays. Matthew is Assistant Professor of Acting and Directing in the College of Arts, Media & Design.


WORKSHOP #2
Tuesday, November 19 at 6:30 PM
Inexpensive Arduino projects for the Theatre
Tools for Creativity workshop with Matthew Gray
Location: Boston Center for the Arts, 539 Tremont St
Free, RSVP requested

Led by Matthew Gray, Assistant Professor of Acting and Directing in the College of Arts, Media and Design, this hands-on workshop walk participants through the stages of making one’s own Arduino-controlled projector dampener. Participants will learn about hardware and software requirements, will have the opportunity to use and experiment with completed dampeners, and will work with five Teaching Assistants to get project-specific questions answered.

Participants are asked to purchase an Arduino micro controller board (commonly found at electronics stores like RadioShack or You-Do-It Electronics) prior to the workshop. In addition to an Arduino, it is recommended that participants bring a laptop and a USB cable. But rest easy: no soldering irons required!
