At this year’s International Music Summit (IMS) in Ibiza, we were thrilled to host IMS College in Destino Tox as official education partners of the summit. International Music Summit is a thought-leadership platform for electronic music, culture, education, technology and wellness, created to inspire ethical change and catalyse sustainable growth within the diverse global music industry.

We at Point Blank, hosted a room dedicated to educating and inspiring attendees as well as showcasing our esteemed faculty of lecturers and providing a glimpse into our distinguished degree programs. Among the notable speakers featured was Anna Lakatos, also known as ANNA DISCLAIM, an electronic musician, singer, audio engineer, Ableton-certified trainer and module leader at Point Blank.

Anna’s masterclass delved into the realm of vocal recording, providing valuable insights and practical tips for beginners.

She also explored the importance of setting the right mood and creating a collaborative environment conducive to creativity when working with other singers. By sharing her own experiences and expertise, Anna guided participants through best practices for fostering harmonious and productive vocal recording sessions.
