Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC) presents Learn to Loop with Allara.

Discover the magic of making music using looped sounds with the multi-talented musician, composer and filmmaker.

Allara (Yorta Yorta) specialises in double bass and loop electronics. She harnesses the spoken word to take the listener on a journey reflecting cultural, spiritual, and environmental empowerment.

In this workshop, Allara performs her 2018 single Wala is Life, and demonstrates how to use the LoopStation app – free and available for Apple and Android devices – in recording and manipulating sounds from one’s surroundings.

Suitable for teenagers interested in making a foray into the world of experimental and electronic music.
