Workshop Description

Unlock the vast potential of electronic music writing and production for your own music making. Guiding you along the way are two experienced artists from Berlin's notorious electronic underground. Combine your instrument/voice with their state of the art electronic performance tools to discover new creative strategies besides traditional songwriting. Across a mix of theoretical as well as practical units we will focus on creating a liquid stream of sound and giving up the ego in pursuit of an alternative musical purpose. The workshop aims at musicians of all levels and dedicates time to collaborative jamming and reflective talk.

Instructor Bio

Psycho & Plastic, aka Thomas Tichai & Alexandre Decoupigny are a Berlin based duo with a passion for nonconformist electronic music. They’re on a mission to reintroduce a sense of wonder and adventure to both the dance floor and the home listening experience and their fiercely independent spirit is not only embodied in their music, but also in their decision to operate their own label GiveUsYourGOLD. Born and raised in Germany and both trained musicians working freelance, Thomas Tichai & Alexandre Decoupigny took up the reigns of their successful double act in 2011. Performing live and touring Europe, they bring a unique energy to every gig skilfully combining Disco, Techno and Psychedelic Rock influences into a genre-hopping smorgasbord of funky beats and insanely catchy hooks.
