Skillz Share: How to Write and Record a Song Using Garageband

Wednesday, June 24, 2020 3 pm

Sabrina Carrizo Sztainbok is a visual artist and musician. She has been playing in bands since she was fourteen (slobrina, pins and needles, tange and luna li) and has been trying to teach herself how to produce her own music over the years. This week Sabrina teaches us how to write and record a song using Garageband!

We do not know the name of the artist who made this promotion poster for a Jimi Hendrix concert held in Portland, Oregon on September 9, 1968.  Posters advertising rock concerts changed drastically in style in the 1960s from simple designs often featuring a photograph of the performer(s) with all relevant information clearly listed below.  The design of the poster didn't reflect the style of the music or the image of the band.  This poster for the Jimi Hendrix Experience is part of a design movement that came together in the Bay Area of California in late 1967, it embraced the counter-culture aesthetic as lived and performed by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and Janis Joplin: music, drugs, casual sex, lights shows, and electric energy.  Thousands of posters had to be produced and distributed every week, and artists borrowed from each other and from other media around them to keep up with the fast pace of production. The very feel of a concert is captured in the poster.  The audience for the band would see themselves reflected in the style of the advertising, all while getting the information they needed to go see the show.
