You will learn music technology fundamentals such as sound recording, production and making your own beats, as well as the structure and use of Indian musical scales, giving you the building blocks to make your own pop music remix. You will then have the opportunity to explore your own sounds in a professional music recording studio, where you will be guided on how to edit and create your own original piece of music within the studio itself!

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the basics of sound recording
  • Learn about Indian music scales
  • Develop critical listening within a group setting
  • Understand what happens in a recording studio
  • Direct the production of an original track
  • Sequencing within a music studio

Electronic India in the studio is a continuation of a 2018 project curated by Liz Dobson in collaboration with SELFA, https://www.selfa.org.uk. Over two weekends Arts Leaders Jess Aslan and Supriya Nagarajan worked with young people delivering workshops involving interactive technology and Indian vocals.


All of the workshops available at our summer school are offered specifically to girls, young women and gender non-conforming/non-binary/transitioning participants ages 11-18. For more information about why, please see the ‘About’ page. If you have further questions please email Dr Liz Dobson who will be happy to provide more information about the science and technology intervention, and provide information about other University of Huddersfield music technology workshops and taster days that are open to everyone: e.d.dobson@hud.ac.uk.
