What is it? A conversation and tech share with a former camper/art and activism fellow and outstanding women in the field sharing their experiences with empowering expression and music technology.
Along with the guitar, drums, D.J. decks and the microphone, modular synths are ideal instruments of social change. This year Willie Mae Rock Camp is launching a suite of year round educational programming called Willie Mae Future Sounds, merging rock and roll with S.T.E.A.M.
This inaugural Festival, sponsored by Teenage Engineering, was livestreamed July 3, 2020 at 8:30p.m. (E.S.T.) to launch the new Willie Mae Future Sounds programming of social justice, afrofuturism, and music technology at the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls in NYC. Future annual Willie Mae Future Sound Festivals will be student-led community music technology celebrations.
