Point Blank is one of the leading schools in the world of electronic music production. Established in 1994, they offer classroom courses from their London and Los Angeles centres, as well as online courses. Celebrated artists such as AlunaGeorge, Claude VonStroke or even Goldie himself attended this institution, and their tutorials on YouTube are a must for thousands of novice producers and experts around the world. Point Blank presents ‘Deconstruction Masterclass‘ at Sónar+D, a session in which a hit will be dissected in order to analyse its elements: sounds, effects, structure and techniques used while producing. The song selected for this workshop will be the one and only ‘Blue Monday’ by New Order.
