Point Blank Music School presents an exclusive masterclass by artist and music innovator Richie Hawtin in which he will introduce his new model of mixer developed together with engineer Andy Rigby-Jones –designer of some of the most celebrated mixers– and Allen & Heath for his musical hardware project PLAYDifferently.
In his session, Hawtin will show his latest live setup and will explore the creative possibilities of this new product – offering a vision of how the digital and analogue worlds get even closer.
DJ and producer Richie Hawtin’s career has always been based around technology. He was one of the very first DJs who adopted the digital format and participated in the development Final Scratch, one of the first timecode systems to control audio files with vinyl records, as well as in the creation of Beatport, the popular digital download network for DJs. Richie Hawtin is currently member of the advisory board of Plus8 Equity, a venture capital firm specialized in music technology projects.
Richie Hawtin will be interviewed by Declan McGlynn, former Associate Editor of Future Music Magazine, freelance writer for DJ Mag and Resident Advisor, and Creative Content Manager for Point Blank Music School. McGlynn has over 10 years of experience as a music technology journalist and content creator.
