Loop-station workshop

An inspiring looping/Loop-station workshop with Chris Woods using an array of different loop stations supplied by Boss (a huge thank you to them for the supply of the kit).

What is Looping? 

In a nutshell, it is a production technique that uses either a Digital audio workstation (DAW) or a dedicated device like those pictured. The Beatles experimented with it on Tomorrow Never Knows – as the technology has advanced, it’s become a ubiquitous technique in modern production across many genres. 

All types of musicians, of any ability can get involved be they a singer or a trombonist, a guitarist or an aspiring producer. For the workshops, we encourage students to bring their own instruments however a limited number will be available.

All students will also have the opportunity to take part in a day-long workshop and performance at Bournemouth & Poole College in 2022, as part of SoundStorm’s exciting new Creative Music Hub venture, which launches this autumn.
