Live effects on baritone microphone using Ableton Live, quad panned using Korg Kaos Pad as a MIDI controller.

Multitrack recording on a second system, mixed and edited afterwards. Stereo mix provided for video of run-through at the end of the week.

Took place at the Britten Studio, Snape Maltings. Workshop was part of the Jerwood Opera Writing Programme run by Aldeburgh Music.
