Once again we have lined up one of our expert instructors for our next Open House event, happening at Point Blank Los Angeles on September 13. This free event is perfect for anyone interested in finding out more about the courses and study experience at our Los Angeles school. The event includes a free masterclass, which gives you a flavor of what it’s like to learn with our expert instructors. For this event, Point Blank instructor Computo will be hosting a music production and performance masterclass using Ableton Live and modular setup. All you need to do to attend is RSVP to the Eventbrite page here.
Joe “Computo” Caputo is a sound designer, producer, audio technologist and music software instructor with a serious addiction to modular synthesis. Having worked as a software specialist at Apple and individual/group instructor in Logic, Garageband, and Final Cut Pro, Computo then went on to complete six years at Native Instruments, where he provided software training to artists such as LMFAO, Zedd, Flying Lotus, Duran Duran, Cliff Martinez, and many more. Computo left Native Instruments and in 2015, joining PBLA and simultaneously starting his own online resource devoted entirely to modular synthesis: Voltage Control Lab (VCL). At Point Blank Los Angeles, Computo teaches courses in Music Production, Composition, and Sound Design.
For the special production masterclass, Computo will be going over the music production process with both digital (Ableton Live) and modular/analog equipment. He will be walking us through a track, sharing sound design techniques and showing us how to set up for an improvised performance combining both digital and analog gear, as well as setting up for a performance with modular equipment.
