Energetic text reading "Respect Her Crank: Sounds of Blackness” "Producing"

Register here! No prior experience is needed.
Tailored for educators, open to all.

From WondaGurl to Ebonie Smith, Black women have produced award-winning pop hits. Yet they are not always household names like some of their counterparts. In Respect Her Crank!: Producing Sounds of Blackness, this changes. Award-winning producer J’Nae White facilitates multiple workshops designed to teach the art of music production, as inspired by Black women producers

This workshop is all about music sampling, a technique used primarily in producing hip-hop music. You will learn how to identify music samples in contemporary songs and reconstruct a sample for a beat of your own while using FL Studio, Sampulator, and Sample Stitch. The best part is that your MIDI is the keyboard.

ASL translation will be provided for this program. If you have any questions about accessibility for this program, please email hirshhornexperience@si.edu.
