Virtual Workshop

Probably our favorite thing to do with RE:VIVE is to give workshops. We like the act of bringing a bunch of different artists together and putting everyone a bit out of their comfort zone by throwing them a curve ball sample pack of archival sounds. We like teaching people new things and we love hearing what you make, even if you think it’s not good (it is good!).  We’re saddened that it might be a while before we’re able to do this again. 

So in the meantime, we’re teaming up with our favorite instructor, Giacomo Piscitelli aka Torgue for a trial run virtual workshop on Saturday, March 28 at 12:00CET. The workshop will focus on the basics of sound design, turning archive field recordings into kicks, snare, synths, pads, patterns etc. We’ll curate a special sample pack especially for this workshop. 

Some practical info: 

  • The instruction will be given in Ableton but the rules and theory of sound design are widely applicable to most DAWs. 
  • The workshop will be conducted via ZOOM. You will receive a URL, meeting code and password to be able to to join. You can download ZOOM at:
  • The workshop will last roughly 1 hour. 
  • The workshop is a pilot, we don’t know how it’s going to go but be prepared to be patient! 

The workshop will be open to 10 people on a first come first serve basis. To sign up, fill out the form at:
