COME & TRY ONLINE FESTIVAL
In Conversation: Making Music on a Budget, 5 April at 4pm
Musicians Jen Mac and Hamish Macleod come together to discuss their tricks about how to make music. They’ll reveal how they got started, how they progressed and released music all from the comfort of their bedroom.
With a background in traditional music, covid-19 restrictions forced Dumfries born guitarist Jenna Macrory (Jen Mac) to adapt to a completely new music industry. Finding a new focus as an electronic music producer, Jen Mac uses sampling to obtain gritty textures and while drawing attention to social and cultural issues such as environmental and LGBTQ+ issues. Jen Mac’s unique approach to manipulating sampled materials contributes to her unique genre subverting tone.
Since gaining a music degree from Glasgow University, Hamish has appeared on nationally broadcast music programmes for the BBC and RTE. He has toured all over Europe, and as far afield as Australia and the UAE.
Hamish first developed a passion for producing music as a teenager and went on to develop his craft by performing and composing under a range of guises, all while avidly consuming as diverse a range of music as possible. He has released music with alt-folk outfit Inyal, and under his solo banner as Lumison.
