DJing w/ Video, DJing w/ Musicians & Pro Tools Workshops

An upcoming course at Dubspot, DJing w/ Video, is being highlighted in this blog entry because it represents the next frontier of DJing: artist and performers in the future will be completely integrating visuals into their live shows.  Led by industry veteran Lars Schlichting of DVJ Vision, this course will inform and inspire the creative vision of anyone looking to develop and expand their artistic repertoire.

Lars will teach students how to turn their DJ sets into full AV-performances using hardware such as Pioneer’s DVJ-1000 DVD-turntable, the SVM-1000 AV-mixer, and other software, such as Serato Video SL.  Learn how to create AV-content by ripping and authoring DVD’s, editing in iMovie, and remixing a music-video.  Final assignment – record your own mixed DVD, that may be used as a demo. 
Dates 5/19 – 6/9

We also have two great weekend workshops coming up.  One, featuring a long-time industry standard of studio software, the other, focusing on the most cutting-edge applications of DJing.

Pro Tools – Led by Chris Buono, this intensive workshop introduces students to the all-powerful world of Digidesign’s Pro Tools.  Learn how to create loops, arrange tracks, record and edit digital audio and MIDI, apply effects and more; all the while leading to the ultimate goal: a complete song.  From an in-depth look at the main windows to exploring the ins and outs of a session, you will be walked through the most pertinent aspects of Pro Tools so you can get busy making music right after the first session. 
Dates 6/10 & 6/11
