Event Description

Language of Music Workshop Series: MODERN DUB AND ELECTRONIC MUSIC (Dubmatix) Thursday July 2nd at 3pm

Dub is a subgenre of electronic music that grew out of reggae. The rhythm section is generally created by one person on a set of turntables, synthesizers, drum machines or other equipment. Where a guitarist or a saxophone player may learn a piece and reinterpret it subconsciously, a selector (A Disk Jockey or DJ) will knowingly take a direct recording and alter it to fit their vision. Part of the job of a selector is to bring together musical interpretations that may otherwise never meet. For example: There is not a great chance we'd ever hear Toots singing on a Michael Jackson bassline but a selector is able to take the tracks and mix them together. Canadian composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist & Five-time Juno Award winner/nominee Dubmatix is among the leading dub selectors in the world. He has seen the musical movement from its inception and will provide his perspective.

In the creative process of a selector, how do they work with these different musical cultures and interpretations to decide which ones will fit together? Are there any recordings or riddims (backlines) that are considered sacred in the community that knowledgeable selectors use? How have looping pedals changed the face of the genre? This workshop will address some of these questions.
