This seminar, comprised of four sessions (June 24-June 27 / 3pm-5pm) , provides a basic understanding of the history and development of electronic music and sound experimentation. Participants will be encouraged to seek out new and experimental ideas and framework for their compositional and performance practices. They will engage in sampling, synthesis, and other different forms of sound manipulation and processing, to allow them to explore sound as an art form using instruments, found objects, voice, recordings, and technology. Participants will be tasked to apply these ideas in different compositional and improvisatory scenarios, emphasizing exploration and experimentation.
The seminar is open to everyone interested in electronic music and sound experimentation. The number of participants is limited to 20 to preserve the quality of engagement. It is recommended that participants bring their own laptop with Garageband audio software and Contact Mic.

Arvin Nogueras is a Manila-based sound and visual artist. He has a degree in BFA from the University of the Philippines.
As an artist, he explores the implication of merging and summing, creating a new artistic syntax out of the debris of the already-given. In exploring sound, he deploys sheets of polyrythmic beats, one-note samples and deconstructed audio cut and paste sound sequences. Sampling is an important part of his work, where the sound archive becomes a creative medium rather than a static imprint of the past. This process allows him an involvement with the past without submitting to its structures and limitations.
For the past 22 years, he has been active in Manila and overseas, primarily involved with the visual and sound art and platforms.
Nogueras has exhibited and performed in different museums and art spaces such as: The Cultural Center of the Philippines, CTM Festival, Berlin, Asian Meeting Festival, Japan, Nusasonic, Jogyakarta, Asian Culture Center South Korea, CPH: DOX in Copenhagen, XP in Beijing, The Shelter (Shanghai), Dommune in Tokyo, Institute of Lower Learning, Saigon, Green Papaya Arts Project, 1335 Mabini, The Drawing Room among others.
