Making Music and Music as Making

Community Notes


Many who do not identify themselves as musicians still interact with music through making mix tapes, burning CD mixes, and creating playlists, while musicians often don't think of their creative output as "making" because their creations in the digital world often exist only at the file level or someone else is actually doing the physical making for them (a record label, a pressing plant, etc.). At NC State we attempt to bridge multimedia making with newer "maker" elements through digital and analog media production workshops that result in physical mix tapes (on cassettes!), Arduino workshops that result in new instruments that can be recorded and added to existing songs, basic audio production workshops that lead to Makerspace made lasercut records from original, in-library recorded material, and more. We will discuss all of these, set up and play with some of the technology, and show how these elements can be used to help patrons both make music and use music to make.
