Attention: Due to the holidays I will not be holding another class until Jan. Also because of low attendance I'm going to offer the class bi-monthly instead of every week. I'd love to hear what times would be best for everyone interested in continuing the class. Songbridge is a new group at Noisebridge that meets Sundays at 1pm in the Church classroom (The back room).

Songbridge is for song hacking: making music that hacks human minds and emotions. We cover multitrack recording using DAWs (digital audio workstations)
