Sound Play

With QWAVE + in part with International Education Conference

November 16, 2022, 1–3pm
Free + in-person program

Sound Play is a creation-based public program geared for the International Education Conference. Rather than being rooted in instrumental performance, this creative composition allows for anyone to wander in and simply play with sound. The premier music production club at Queen’s University – QWAVE will be leading participants through free form sound play, where visitors will be invited to rearrange sounds in the gallery.


QWave was born out of the mix of passion and uncertainty that comes with entering the world of music production. As a novice producer, you want to establish your own sound - but you keep hitting roadblocks you don’t know how to navigate and everything seems so expensive! We understand it can be daunting; with so much to learn, where do you even start? We makes the entry into the realm of music production less overwhelming in a lot of ways. At QWave, we educate our members on the basics and intricacies of DAWs, hardware & software, promote the music they make, and facilitate the creation of their music by providing access to state-of-the-art production technology. We invite the best and the brightest of local and international producers to share their knowledge with us and develop supportive relationships with industry professionals.

Connecting Queen’s students, faculty, alumni and the greater Kingston community, regardless of skill level, creates a supportive environment that QWave is proud to lead. We continue to work and develop the community on campus to help anyone explore their passion for music production, and we hope you’ll be a part of it.
