With the myriad of sounds, sources, patches and effects at our disposal it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the choices available to music producers and artists.
As part of the LBB Pop-Up School we will be focussing in on a lateral approach to music production in the Produce the Unexpected – Music Creation Session.
In this session Producer and CDR founder Tony Nwachukwu will demonstrate how a clearly defined creative process can become part of an improvisational approach to beat making and sound design. The session is open to beat focussed artists and producers from all backgrounds.
Bringing your own laptop (and headphones) is encouraged. Knowledge of Ableton Live 9 is useful as it will be used as a framework throughout.
