Daily Masterclasses and Workshops
Electronic and Electroacoustic Music Production Day Camp (new for 2020)
We partnered with Slam Academy and faculty member J Anthony Allen to offer an intensive electronic and electroacoustic music production mini-camp. featuring creative production tools Ableton Live, Max4Live, and Max/MSP. This is an optional add-on for accepted composition fellows at a substantially discounted rate or may be elected as a standalone package for anyone. Seats, however, are limited.
Housing, Meals, and Transportation
Due to the wide range of circumstances and needs of our applicants, the program is able to offer a discounted housing and meal package as an option. Participants are not required to enroll in this plan. We are also happy to assist those who wish to make their own accommodation arrangements. We are also happy to arrange a discounted private car/van shuttle service from major city airports and railway stations. Torino (Turin) is the most often used gateway for arriving and departing by air or rail. Turin is located about an hour and fifteen minutes from Alba by car. However, both Milan and Genova are also possible points of arrival and departure, each about two and a half hours drive from Alba.
Participants who take advantage of the housing/meal package will have one round-trip transfer provided (to/from Turin).
Facilities: The Alba Campus, Music School, Beppe Fenoglio Hall
