#a2n_werkstatt 2012 presents:
REMIX LAB: “de:Construction – Analyse, Arrangement, Songwriting Kurs” by JULIE CHANCE & JON DARK aka KOOL THING
The workshop will look inside the music of KOOL THING – firstly deconstructing the music layer by layer and giving insight into the compositional process and production ideas within the program Logic Studio. Then the second half of the workshop will talk about converting this sound into an engaging professional live performance using program Ableton Live.
KOOL THING began as the duo of JULIE CHANCE and JON DARK, originally from Dublin and Sydney, respectively, who met in Paris at some side-street dive bar where Chance was DJing. KOOL THING’s nocturnal sound weaves together textured washes of guitar, shadowy synthesizers and driving beats with layered vocals that deliver a strong visual narrative. The last year has seen the band travelling across Europe playing in London, Paris, Copenhagen, Dublin, Vienna, Prague and all over Germany with renowned artists such as MEN, Light Asylum, Aerea Negrot, Maria Minerva and LCMDF. After initial online buzz and word of mouth about their seductive live performance, AUSTRA hand picked KOOL THING as support act for both their European tours in 2011 and invited them back to tour Australia in 2012. This summer has already seen them share the stage with the likes of Grimes, Lower Dens and New Order to name but a few.
