Point Blank Host Workshops & Panel as Educational Partner at IMS Asia-Pacific

Point Blank is heading East! With Point Blank an official educational partner of the International Music Summit’s (IMS) Asia-Pacific Conference for the first time, Rob Cowan and expert instructor Saytek will be taking part in panels and workshops at the event, which takes place in Shanghai on 21st – 22nd September. This event also sees a number of other high-profile guest artists and speakers including Laidback Luke and Howie B host a range of workshops and masterclasses, together with industry pro’s from Pioneer DJ, Warner Music, BBC Radio 1 and many others involved over the two days. Check out the highlights from last year in the video below.

To kick off the event, Point Blank expert instructor Saytek will be hosting a ‘music production 101’ workshop, before giving 1 on 1 support to aspiring music makers at dedicated production stations at the event throughout the day. Saytek is currently developing the Electronic Music Performance module for our BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering Degree, whilst outside of PB his hardware-heavy live shows have led him to be billed as ‘one of the UK’s most exciting acts’, and his energetic performances have won him the support of the likes of Seth Troxler, Carl Cox, Laurent Garnier and Nic Fanciulli.

On the second and final day of the event Point Blank CEO and Founder, Rob Cowan, will be joining a number of other industry professionals on a panel entitled ‘Big Thinkers: Big Picture’, discussing current developments in the music industry. Fellow panelists include CEO of events company A2LiVE Eric Zho and Australian DJ program Your-Shot’s co-founder Steve Pillemer.
