Nov 13 – Ferndale Library Presents “Distillation of Sound”

Ferndale, MI – On Saturday, November 13 from 2pm to 3:30pm, Ferndale Area District Library and Abbey Productions presents “Distillation of Sound: A Cultural History of Dub in Jamaica (and Beyond)”, a multimedia/interactive in-person presentation and Q&A.

Eric Abbey, Ph.D. leads a presentation on dub techniques in audio engineering and the history of dub—a genre of music that expanded upon reggae coming from Jamaica in the late 1960s. This interactive program is for any/all music lovers, serving as a preview of Abbey’s forthcoming book on the subject of dub, Distillation of Sound (coming this winter).

Abbey, a lifelong musician, will talk about dub techniques in Jamaica and how the music produced by its creative engineers and resident artists helped inspire the next generation to create hip-hop and rap music. Working with original musical compositions, Abbey will demonstrate mixing techniques through a homemade Jamaican-styled sound system. Abbey encourages Q&A from the audience throughout his presentation.

The Ferndale Library is located at 222 E. Nine Mile Road.
