FeM Synth Lab x Girls Are Loud: Mix Engineering w/ Eva Reistad
Thursday September 17, 2020 // 7:30pm–9:30pm
In this online workshop Eva will take us through some tips and tricks to have a successful recording session with multiple musicians playing in the room live. We’ll cover the process of preparing for a recording session, steps to take to keep it running smoothly once you’ve started recording, and what to do once you’ve gotten all your material down on tape! Turning your recordings into a final product/great sounding mix can be a daunting task–so part of this workshop will cover some basic mixing techniques/lingo that will help you explain what you would like to hear to your engineer or producer, or even do the mix yourself!
This event prioritizes all marginalized genders, including but not limited to trans women, cis women, trans men, non-binary, intersex, gender nonconforming, two-spirit and questioning folx. We ask that our cis male allies and friends respectfully do not sign up, as we recognize that electronic music is overwhelmingly dominated by cis men.

Her experience in the audio field is vast- ranging from session managing and engineering at indie rock studio Kingsize Soundlabs in Los Angeles, working in film scoring with notable names such as Alan Meyerson and Hans Zimmer, and freelance editing/mixing/tracking for a variety of artists--including Girls Are Loud!
