This unique session is best summed up in Jlin ’s own words:

"My 5-week course will be based around you the artist evolving your sound, and learning to trust yourself. I want each artist to feel comfortable knowing that they have a different journey. Your craft is not a game of speed, but a marathon that requires discipline, consistency, tenacity, and most importantly vulnerability. I look forward to meeting and interacting with each of you. Let's learn from each other."

Sessions will follow five subject areas:

How Do I Find My Sound?
Intuition vs. Mechanics
How Do I Know If I'm Intune with Myself?
Why Am I Afraid to Trust My Sound?
Trusting Your Process vs. Trusting the Trend

Jlin first appeared on the international stage via Planet Mu's second Bangs & Works compilation, which had a huge impact on electronic/club music. Though she's known for bringing footwork to a wider audience, Jlin doesn't consider herself a footwork artist. Hailing from Gary, Indiana, a place close yet distant enough from Chicago to allow her to develop a different perspective on the genre, she has morphed its sounds into something entirely new. Released in 2015, her debut album Dark Energy's innovative sound propelled it to the top of many of the year's Best Of lists. Jlin's sophomore album Black Origami (2017)was released to even greater critical acclaim and attention. In 2018, Jlin composed the music for "Autobiography", a major new dance work by celebrated choreographer Wayne McGregor.



WHERE AND WHEN?

This is an online course, but it involves realtime sessions and contact time with your tutor - it's not a "download these videos and watch them at your leisure" type of thing - it's a real workshop with live lectures, individual tuition, assignments and feedback sessions. We've tried to make this remote session as close as possible to the experience of an onsite workshop at CAMP. The course starts on 22/08/2021 and ends on 19/09/2021. The schedule for sessions is as follows (all times are CET):

  • Session 1: 22/08/2021, 17:00 - 21:00 CET
  • Session 2: 29/08/2021, 17:00 - 21:00 CET
  • Session 3: 12/09/2021, 17:00 - 21:00 CET
  • Session 4: 19/09/2021, 17:00 - 21:00 CET
  • Session 5: 26/09/2021, 17:00 - 21:00 CET
