I am very happy to announce the upcoming launch of Spacefood’s new online education platform for teaching electronic music production via Ableton Live! The platform allows students to collaborate online with Spacefood Ableton Instructors.
Accompanying the release of the new platform are two, 6-week courses covering the fundamentals of Ableton Live. These courses augment production tips for a genre of your choice! Currently, students can choose between learning Dubstep production or Techno production. Each of these courses incorporates essential lessons for composing in each of these genres.
The Dubstep course, for example, covers synthesis techniques for creating the iconic “wub” bass using Ableton’s “Operator” synth and a handful of native effects. Each activity is designed to reinforce important points covered during each 60-90 minute lesson.
Students are required to attend 2 online classes per week for the entire 6 week period. By the end of the course, students will have an understanding of the core functionality of Ableton Live and insight into techniques for composing their favorite genre of electronic music.
Classes begin August 10, 2017.
