Over the course of 2 days the delegates were able to watch an interactive Drake music workshop involving Bettridge students, working with technology to produce music. They were then able to try the techniques themselves, including making sound from some unusual objects. There were also sessions on making music from sounds all around us using recording and editing, and creating installations using touch boards.
Guy from the Optimusic company delivered training on Optimusic. For many of the participants this was the first time that they had seen the technology (only the Maltese had had it installed before this), and so Guy was able to demonstrate the mechanics of setting up a session, and the myriad possibilities already installed on the system. Later he also gave some training on making a new program to the more confident users.
