WHAT IS HYPERFLOW?

 

HYPERFLOW is a music making workshop, where participants will be rapidly creating new songs in a limited time span. This workshop will help you practice making music faster, and turn off the part of your brain that constantly critiques your own music and stops you from making anything new. With an open creative space and structured urgency, your critical side doesn't have time to stop your work, and it leave only your creative side to make lots of work! It encourages you to reach a state of musical “Flow”. After refining the workshop in San Francisco and Berlin, we are ready to deliver an improved version of this in Los Angeles.

 

This month, I'm changing the workflow a bit, to allow for more time per song. We usually make 6 songs, but I'm changing it to 3 songs. Id like to see people further develop and finish their ideas before they leave!

 

Event is hosted by HABITAAT

HOW IT WORKS:

The goal of the day is for each participant to create 3 new tracks in the span of an 8 hour day. We will offer structure and strategies to help you make the songs (Beat Recipes), and you will walk away with new songs, new techniques and new music producer connections.

 

 

Bring your laptop, headphones, and any controllers/midi keyboards that you use to make your music. We will have ample breaks as well as a longer lunch break for you to get to know your fellow attendees and take breathers if you want to.

 

 

You are free to make the songs however way you please. However, we will be running some structured follow-alongs to help you come up with ideas and help you get them off the ground, and we will encourage you to join. The first two hour will focus on rapid music idea generation, making full ideas (Melodies, bess, chords, drums) in very short sprints. As the day continues you will build off of these ideas to create better versions of these songs. The last part of the day will be focused on finishing your tracks. Every song must be exported by the end of the day. The day will finish with a ‘track sharing session’ where everyone gets to pick their favorite track they produced and share it with the group over some drinks.
