CTM 2017 x Red Bull Studios

Masterclasses, Gear Testing, Talks and more with Ableton, Native Instruments and RBMA

CTM will  teams up with Red Bull Studios Berlin as well as with Ableton and Native Intruments to present several daytime events.

On February 1st, CTM and ingenious Berlin-based music hardware and software company Ableton will collectively host a masterclass with composer, sound designer and percussionist Dennis DeSantis, who is Head of Documentation at the company and wrote the popular book Making Music: Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers. In this talk, which is open to beginners and pros alike, DeSantis will explore different types of creative strategies for getting started, making progress, and (most importantly) getting music finished.

On February 2nd and 3rd,  celebrated Berlin based music hardware/software company Native Instruments, will offer the two -day "Native Sessions." This event picks up from the "Komplete Sketches" project in which Native Instruments challenge a handful of Berlin-based producers, CTM alumni, and CTM 2017 artists to create a musical sketch using effects and instruments exclusively from the Native Instrument "Komplete 11" software. The producers will present their work and offer sound design masterclasses. The event will be expanded via roundtable discussions about the role of cutting-edge sound design in giving voice to emotions and developing artistic identity. The sketches will be played at a listening station in Kunstquartier Bethanien throughout the festival.

On Saturday, February 4th, CTM and RBMA present special sessions with Earth’s Dylan Carlson and with MikeQ at Red Bull Studios Berlin.
