PBLA CNTRPNT Modular Workshop ft. Bon Harris (Nitzer Ebb, Smashing Pumpkins): Oct 2nd

CNTRPNT is a monthly workshop series focusing on modular synthesis and music technology. Each month features a performance from a different artist or visionary as well as a discussion about their methods and motivations behind working in the modular synth world. This month, we’re delighted to say CNTRPNT will be touching down at Point Blank Los Angeles on October 2nd for a special appearance from PB expert Sound Design instructor Bon Harris (Nitzer Ebb, The Smashing Pumpkins, Marilyn Manson).

Register for your FREE tickets via the Eventbrite page. The PBLA CNTRPNT Modular Workshop is a perfect opportunity to see our Los Angeles school for yourself if you haven’t already – all at the same time as learning some invaluable skills and techniques from PBLA expert instructor Bon Harris.

The event will start at 6pm at Mack Sennett Studios, 1215 Bates Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90029. Moderated by creators and Point Blank LA team Joe Computo (Flying Lotus, A-Trak, Zedd) and Viktor Carrillo, CNTRPNT aims to spread a wider awareness of the growing Euro-rack and hardware modular synthesizer industry, and to demystify the often confusing intersection of hardware and software based music production. The event is free and open to the public.

COMPUTOComputo (Flying Lotus, Zedd, A-Trak) is one of our expert instructors at Point Blank Los Angeles, and he’s one of the creators of the CNTRPNT Modular Workshop which is taking place on 2nd October

A founding member of Nitzer Ebb, Bon Harris is well known for his programming and synth work, collaborating with Depeche Mode, The Smashing Pumpkins and Marilyn Manson. In addition to his prolific synth work, Bon is also the expert Sound Design instructor at Point Blank Los Angeles. Bon will be presenting a short performance using his classic Roland System 100 modular with the new Aira effects followed by a discussion of Modular Synthesis techniques and question/answer session.

When we asked him about CNTRPNT, Computo said: “We started CNTRPNT to bring together the larger community of modular synth enthusiasts in Los Angeles for an event that is entertaining and educational while revealing some of the magic behind the machines. A workshop seemed like a great way to include music, discussion and audience participation in one event, giving people a chance to engage and interact with these great artists.”
