Stage+D (P4 Level 1)
How are electronic music hits built?, What artists and records have been influential in their creation?, What production tricks and techniques were used? How did artists define the track’s structure and what effects did they use to give the song a unique character?
All these questions and more will find answers at Point Bank’s “Deconstruction Masterclass”, where this year, they will take apart Dj Shadow’s “Mutual Slump” to analyze each of the pieces that have made this track from 1996 one of the milestones of hip hop and a sonic point of reference of the 90s.
Point Blank is one of the leading schools in the world of electronic music production. Established in 1994, they offer courses from their London and Los Angeles centres, as well as online courses.
