NYJO Learning Presents: Summer Lab feat. Blue Lab Beats
This Summer, NYJO is delighted to be teaming up with Blue Lab Beats to bring you an exciting new project at Woolwich Works! The London-born jazztronica duo released their third album Motherland on the legendary Blue Note label this year and are ready to educate and entertain all attendees with a project rooted in what they do best: jazz in the digital era.
Where, When & Who
- 1st – 4th of August 2022
- 12pm – 6pm Monday – Wednesday
- 2pm – 10pm Thursday
- Woolwich Works, The Fireworks Factory, 11 No. 1 Street, SE18 6HD
- For creatives aged 14-18
- Producers, musicians with an instrument, vocalists, & digital music-makers are all welcome!
Blue Lab Beats will be leading an exploration into where digital meets live instrumentation; where live jazz meets beats; and where instruments meet programming. Come with your ideas – whether it’s a few lyrics, a melody on an instrument, or something you’re working on in Garage Band, Logic, Reason or however you create!
These workshops will help take your ideas and develop them into individual and group compositions.
This project will also include an opportunity to come armed with questions for both NK-OK and MR. DM. If you’d like to learn from their experiences in the music industry and gain insights into their approach as musicians, producers and collaborators, make sure you sign up today!
- This course costs £100 for the four days
- Places are FREE for Greenwich residents on Free School Meals
- Bursaries are available for ANY APPLICANT (including those outside of Greenwich Borough) on Free School Meals/from a low-income family/with barriers to accessing music-making opportunities
Please don’t let the cost be a barrier to you coming – we will do our best to reduce the cost for anyone who needs it.
The Summer Lab Jam
We will end the project with an open jam for all participants to play alongside Blue Lab Beats on Thursday 6th August 8 – 10pm. You’ll share what you’ve been working on in the project. Invite your friends & family to the jam – it’s gonna be great!
