Watch Point Blank in conversation with Matthew Dear on Richie Hawtin’s CNTRL Tour
Point Blank has had the honour of partnering with Richie Hawtin’s CNTRL Tour for 2015. They’ve been travelling across North America inspiring and educating the next generation of electronic music producers and their first stop was Berklee College of Music in Boston. They were joined by Ghostly International co-founder Matthew Dear for a production masterclass focusing on his brand new remix for Leftfield.
Using Ableton Live, Matthew explains everything from his sound design approach to how he arranges his tracks, why stripping back your studio can work wonders and how his classic ‘Mouth to Mouth’ was made. Watch the video below and if you want to learn more about Ableton Live, Point Blank’s Diploma course covers everything you need to take your productions to the next level.
With modules on composition, mixing, sound design and more, it’s a comprehensive, creative and collaborative course which can be taken for up to 64 weeks! Find out more about it here and remember to join Point Blank on the final leg of their CNTRL journey in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles!
