“I am honored to find out today that I received a 2020-2021 cash award from NYU Tisch School of the Arts. The award, from the Adjunct Professional Development Grant Award Fund, is to further develop my work via Remote Recording Workshops in the composition, performance, and public engagement of our mobile electric guitar project Tilted Axes for its 10th anniversary.
The created work will be used to address community concerns (i.e. the use of public spaces), global concerns (i.e. climate change and renewable energy), and future concerns (i.e. space exploration and unforeseen discoveries). Above all, it’s about connecting as humans, creating music together, and moving it out into the world.”
VERY happy to announce that VOX Amps and KORG USA have renewed and upped their sponsorship of Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars! We now embark on the road to our 10th anniversary this coming December on the Winter Solstice. Stay tuned for all the news leading up to Tilted@10.
CONGRATULATIONS to the participants of our Winter 2021 Remote Recording Workshop for completing the course with honors.
THANK YOU to our supporters and co-producers who enabled these classes be FREE of charge to the community. We now have even more musicians and music to look forward to for Tilted Axes and all other kinds of new projects in our community to present to the public.
Look out for spring sessions coming in April.
Amy Denio “Patrick Grant is a fantastic teacher and delightful musician. Music creates community, and Patrick encourages this beautifully in his workshops.
Dave Fabris “…(an) insightful and inspirational class!”
Jeff Adams “I know more now than I did before. This mini course gives me more confidence moving forward with my recording endeavours!”
Peter Legowski “Thank you for your excellent how-to that was both inspirational and grounded in immutable properties of sound. You offered a simple useful approach for using the DAW – Ableton – that I already have more effectively, and opened doors to new creative possibilities. Yay!”
Henry Lowman “THANK YOU, Patrick, for expanding the possibilities! MANY questions answered. We proceed…”
Jeremy Slater “Thanks so much! It was great. I learned a lot!”
Kim Cary “This class has been eye opening and ear opening…fun and surprising in many ways.
David Ross “I learned many important aspects of working in the studio and with others that will now become a foundation. You have a great way of distilling the essentials in every topic that you presented. I came away with a much more solid understanding of the tools and components of my studio as well as your enlightened protocols for remote collaboration… I would definitely participate in any workshop that you might offer in the future.”
Joe Pfeffer “You’re super talented at the online format. I had a terrific time, and I’m smarter too.”
Angela Babin “Patrick is a great instructor – patient and welcoming while keeping our group on task and focused.”
Alex Durante “The workshop provided valuable insights into the art and science of sound recording. I had no prior experience recording music and he showed me the fundamentals of getting a good sound from my instrument.”
Jason Goldstein “Patrick Grant’s class provided me with a great introduction to recording on my computer. I really appreciate his time, effort, and expertise. I especially enjoyed our guitar ensemble recordings! I highly recommend this class to anyone who might be interested in it.”
Milica Paranosic “Thank you Patrick! I’ve learned a lot from you. As always.”
David Oskardmay “Many thanks! This is very helpful. Time to dream of wires…”
