Presented in partnership with Music NSW, the Women in Electronic Music masterclasses, highlight the talented and inspiring women working in Australia’s electronic music scene. The aim of the masterclasses is to provide opportunities for women to learn technical and production skills for making electronic music. We're excited to bring to Tassie, two of Australia's best female electronic producers, Rainbow Chan and Alice Ivy, to share their knowledge, experience, and mad music skills. The masterclasses will touch on software, hardware, DJing, recording techniques, how to turn samples into songs, how to perform live and how to use a variety of technologies to create electronic music.


Song Structures: Laying down the foundations of your track

Learn how to build basic song structures with the master of alt-pop composition, Rainbow Chan. The Sydney artist will run through the all the essentials you need to use a Digital Audio Workstation such as Garage Band and Ableton Live. In this Women in Electronic Masterclass, Rainbow will guide you as you create your own backing track that you can add vocals to at home. She’ll also teach you tips and tricks on collecting field sounds so you can fill out your song, regardless of your instrumental knowledge.  

What you need to bring: A phone that has recording abilities (just like voice notes or memos) and a laptop with a digital audio workstation on it such as Ableton or GarageBand. For those who don't have this, Ableton has a free 30-day trial.
