Advanced Sampling Technique: Sample Yourself

In this two hour workshop, you’ll learn how to finish a song by sampling your initial musical idea to create new sections. Together, we’ll break down my song “It All Comes Back To You In The End,” from my EP, Fever Dreams at Ruger Place, which was entirely composed using sampling-based songwriting techniques.

Topics and Techniques Covered:

  • Thematic development and its application in sample-based music
  • Creating vocal-based synth leads
  • The defamiliarizing power of granular synthesis
  • Sampling individual elements vs entire sections
  • Warping and twisting vocals

Who is this class for:

Music producers, composers, sound designers who want to finish their recordings, broaden their creative music making toolkit, and expand their ideas of composition and form. This class is designed for those who would assess their skills at an intermediate or advanced level, but all are welcome.

Who you'll be learning from:

My name's ZW Buckley. I'm a composer, music producer, and teaching artist living in Seattle. I teach Creative Audio for the award winning Point Blank Music School and private music production lessons for composers and music producers all around the world. Recently, I composed the music for Mattel and Peeka VR's Barbie: You Can Be A Fashion Designer, which marks the popular toy's first foray into virtual reality. I'll be spending much of the next year composing my first opera, which will be premiered at the Seattle Opera next summer.

Important Note on DAWs and plugins:

This workshop will be taught entirely in Ableton Live 11 Suite with a focus on stock Ableton plugins. The techniques covered in the workshop can be applied and/or adapted to any other DAW using a combination of stock or 3rd party plugins. However, it is up to you to determine the necessary alternative tools for yourself if you are not using Ableton.
