This post was prompted by a comment Gary made regarding the resources available to musicians, in one of my previous posts about using EWQL Silver along with gpo. What boggles my mind is the liberating potential of current music technology for non-musicians.
In fact my mind was boggled so much that it lead me to put together a Computer Music course specifically aimed at people you would say were non-musicians but who were keen to learn about music creation. I'm running this course at my university in the new year using Garageband and hope to attrack mainly non-musicians. You can put together some really neat tunes using Garagebands loops & expansion packs with little or no musical knowledge - all it takes is someone to show you how.
Why am I doing this - I must be out of my mind!
