Event description

Description

Sound School presents a lecture-workshop with Rashad Becker.

Rashad is considered one of the world’s foremost mastering engineers at the Berlin-based Dubplates & Mastering studio, with technical credits on hundreds of the most renowned underground electronic releases of the last decade.

More recently Becker has been fetishised as an avant-garde composer and solo electronic musician in his own right, with a practice wrapped up in precision and radical listening. His recent release on Berlin label PAN is hailed as ‘redolent of Smithsonian Folkways’ field recordings, with nods to early musique concrète and intercepted extraterrestrial transmissions’. Becker’s compositions are multilayered narratives populated by an ensemble of sonic entities. Often there’s a tragic-comical touch, like a cartoon version of what could be a requiem from a dream (or just as much a fertility dance from another dimension).

“Becker’s deft manipulation of the oddball sounds he creates allows him to elevate what could have been hazy sketches into the realm of high art” —The Quietus

Sound School is a community organisation delivering electronic music workshops that celebrate and upskill emerging artists on the margins. Sound School is proud to collaborate with Liquid Architecture to present the ideas and techniques of artists from international communities in our inclusive and experimental workshop series. Entry to all Sound School events is free but places are limited: we extend a special invitation to people of colour, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, queer and trans folk, women, and people with disabilities.

Siteworks is a wheelchair accessible venue. Please contact us if you have any questions about accessibility. We acknowledge that this event will take place on the lands of the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin nations and pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging. We acknowledge that genocide is ongoing and that sovereignty was never ceded.
