Daragh Slacke is a Cavan music teacher, facilitator, producer, performer, songwriter and manager of a number of groups, ranging from traditional to funk and progressive rock. In this workshop, he will provide a unique opportunity for young people to learn the art of making music and videos.
Participants of this drop in workshop will learn the techniques of producing a song, using online applications such as Soundtrap and KineMaster. Daragh will share his tricks and tips when it comes to writer’s block – on how to get the ball rolling, and ways to cope when nothing seems to be happening.
Using other techniques such as music in nature, Daragh will incorporate sounds from our environment and making music from it. As part of the course, the participants will have the opportunity to work with filmmaker P Conaty and Cummins Ancient Ireland, a poetic force of nature.
Participants will be taken through the process of video production and refining the music and video for the final publication, which will be ready for Cruinniú day on the Creative Cavan Monaghan YouTube channel!
This is an ongoing project with young people across Cavan and Monaghan counties.
