Providing students with the knowledge behind the musical choices that the tutorials do not talk about; try to decipher a grammar to analyze the music of others, and consequently to get a better understanding of his/her own music and how to improve it; orientating the student in completing a track in a creative, fun and non-trivial way. The most important thing is that when you find yourself in any phase that we will face together, you ask yourself the right questions, and take the choice that most closely matches your taste.
To whom is it addressed?
The course is conceived for who intends to start producing electronic music, who has already started but wants to get out of their creative process to discover new ones, and who wants to bring their music to a higher quality level. It’s a “transversal” course and we will touch both basic elements of music production and aesthetic details from many underrated producers, the result of several years of research and exchange of opinions among professionals in the music field. We will work with the Ableton Live program, and with generally few elements / tools, but in detail.
