In this workshop Aja Ireland will teach you how to make environmental recordings, and create a wide range of different sounds and textures by only using simple, built in Ableton Plugins. You will learn to build ambient/drone/noise textures, experiment and discovering new sounds as a group through live demonstration.
Using unsettling noise, distressed screams, hand made electronics and found objects pushed through pedals, AJA’s industrial beats and distorted drone, combined with a psycho-visceral, intense performance, challenges the audience by breaking down barriers and pushing limits sonically and visually. AJA has so far had her music played at Berlin Alternative Fashion Week for designer LU LA LOOP; played live on NTS Radio and after making the sound score for artist Joey Holder for the piece “Ophiux”; and toured the UK and Europe performing live. She won the Oram Award funded by PRS foundation in 2018. Her debut album was released on Opal Tapes in May 2018.
