Turn The Tables
Turn The Tables was part of our 2011 Artist Development programme, focussing on DJ skills and assistive music technology. We ran one-off DJ workshop days in London and Bristol, with plans to repeat this in other cities once links are established and funding sought.
We ran our first ever Turn The Tables event in London on Sunday 21st August. The day time was broken up into a series of workshop sessions focusing on the following aspects of DJ skills:
• How to use a mixer
• Cueing up tracks
• Different media formats
• How to beat match
Our team of DJ facilitators delivered a broad range of techniques including using vinyl and CD decks, using assistive music technology in new ways and testing Tom Slater's Haptix system.
We then held an afterparty open to all, which showcased the talents of some of the participants.
