Point Blank to Host Two Masterclasses at Palm Expo Mumbai 2017

Next week, we’ll be heading to Mumbai for the 17th edition of Palm Expo. Held from the 1st to the 3rd of June, Palm Expo is India’s pro sound and light trade fair, with manufacturers from all over the world showcasing their products and a wide variety of workshops and guest speakers.

Point Blank will be hosting two workshops at the event. The first on Friday 2nd June with Mumbai-based Producer Kumail, who will be giving an insight into his creative process, discussing how he uses ‘found sound’ and how he makes his mixes more interesting. He will be deconstructing one of his tracks whilst explaining his workflow, showing the audience how to make the most out of their DAWs by only using stock plugins to create the sounds you desire.

On the final day of the event, we will be hosting a masterclass with former Point Blank student and award-winning film score composer Sanchit Balhara, who will be discussing a project of his and sharing his process when it comes to scoring for film. This masterclass will include his initial approach to writing music for film, from considering the whole film as a unit to representing certain characters through music, as well as discussing arrangement and the importance of specific rhythm patterns & instruments. Sanchit will also be covering tempo, key & time signature (and their changes), the use of theme melody and the importance of silence. This looks to be a comprehensive masterclass from a well-respected and renowned figure in the Bollywood film industry and should prove to be incredibly insightful!
