Steinberg announces Music Production Workshops this Autumn

Music Production Workshop

Steinberg has announced upcoming music production workshops in the United Kingdom. Together with Yamaha and sE Electronics, Steinberg has scheduled tour dates from Poole in the South to Perth up in Scotland.

As a part of the ongoing Steinberg Training Center education program, these interactive education events feature critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Martyna Wren, session and touring drummer Emily Dolan Davies (Tricky, Becky Hill, Bryan Ferry, The Hours) and multi-instrumentalist, producer and Cubase expert Andy Schrav (Peter Andre, Delta Goodrem, Paper Aeroplanes). Over the next month the artists will visit South and City College in Birmingham, Derby University, Edinburgh College and Perth University and run a series of customized workshops for enrolled students.

In addition to supplying top-quality artists, the manufacturers will also provide a collection of the latest music production equipment for the workshops. The tour ends at the Music Production Expo in London where all manufacturers will have representatives available for one-on-one sessions and product related questions.

Richard Johnstone, UK Business Development Manager comments: “This is a superb opportunity to not only see and hear the very latest music production software and hardware in action, but to see artists and industry professionals showing how these products can help you in developing and enhancing your song-writing process, through to final production.”

Schools can find more information at www.steinberg.net/en/education/training.html and apply by emailing educationteam@steinberg.de.

There are also a number of events open to the general public. Registrations are required and the events are booking out quickly. Please check for dates and registration details here.

Moogfest 2014 & Moog Music announce 4th Annual Circuit Bending Challenge

Moogfest Circuit Bending Challenge

Moogfest and Moog Music has announced a Circuit Bending Challenge, offering you a chance to win Moog’s Sub Phatty, Slim Phatty and Minitaur synthesizers and free passes to the Moogfest 2014 festival.

Moog Music was born when a young Bob Moog started tinkering with electronic circuitry. As a boy, Moog built small radios, amps, and Theremins in his basement workshop with his father and the rest is history. This experimentation with the inner workings of electronic devices to create new sounds and effects has been developed into an art form known as circuit bending.

Circuit bending is a creative medium that combines technology, sonic artistry and creativity. By altering the internal circuitry of electronic devices such as keyboards, drum machines, and children’s toys, circuit benders are able to produce new sounds not intended in the original design.

In celebration of this creative curiosity that fueled a young Bob Moog and all of those that follow in his footsteps, Moog is sponsoring its 4th Annual Circuit Bending Contest.

This year, Moog’s circuit bending contest is challenging entrants to take a battery powered device and circuit bend it into an instrument capable of creating new and unique sounds for a total budget of $70 or less.

Moog will select three finalists and invite them to showcase their creations at Moogfest in April of 2014 where Moog’s judges and the general public will decide a winner of the contest.

The deadline for submitting your entry is February 28th, 2014.

creativeLIVE unlocks music industry secrets with new audio channel

creativeLIVE

creativeLIVE has announced the addition of an audio channel to its online broadcast network.

Instead of scouring YouTube for homemade tutorials, you can now learn music production and business directly from leading DJs, producers, and managers. creativeLIVE, a live education platform, today announced the addition of an audio channel to their online broadcast network. creativeLIVE’s free workshops — on topics ranging from DAWs to networking — teach musicians the technical skills and industry knowledge needed to make a living in the music business. The audio program will launch with classes taught by Incubus manager Steve Rennie, metal guitarist/producer Eyal Levi and EDM DJ Big Chocolate.

Founded in 2010, creativeLIVE is transforming online learning by providing free, live access inside previously-closed doors. Venturing into music makes sense for a company whose CEO, Mika Salmi, is responsible for discovering and signing Nine Inch Nails. Of the audio channel launch, Salmi said, “Music is close to my heart and we have been chomping at the bit to launch an audio channel on creativeLIVE. Just like in photography and other channels, we will be bringing world class experts to teach real actionable skills. I personally can’t wait to update my DJ skills!”

Creativity is the new literacy — and creativeLIVE is where musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs find the skills they need to make their dreams of living the creative life a reality.

Upcoming creativeLIVE audio courses

  • Music Business 101: Networking with Steve Rennie
    The driving force behind Incubus’ blockbuster success, Steve Rennie, AKA RENMAN, will reveal how he went from booking shows in Hollywood to managing platinum-selling bands. Spoiler alert: Networking isn’t just for business bros. (Sept. 12)
  • Eyal Levi: Digital Drums with EZDrummer
    Billboard top 200 staple Eyal Levi (Whitechapel, August Burns Red, Devildriver, and Job for a Cowboy) will teach a one-day course on how to digitally create real-sounding drums in EZDrummer. (Sept. 25)
  • Big Chocolate: Producing EDM with Ableton Live
    DJ/producer Big Chocolate (Cameron Argon) started making music in his bedroom at the age of 16, and is now an internationally-renowned performer coming off his second Warped Tour. Big Chocolate will demonstrate how he gets his song ideas out of his head and into finished tracks using Ableton Live. (Sept. 30)

The free live workshops will be available to creativeLIVE members (registration is free).
