PBLA Guest Masterclass Hosted by Chris Holmes (Paul McCartney’s Tour DJ)

At Point Blank Los Angeles we are constantly reaching out to our network of music industry contacts in the local scene, organising guest workshops and masterclasses for the benefit of our students and graduates. Just in the last six months we’ve had the pleasure of hosting Mix Master Mike, Robot Koch, and Sample Magic CEO Sharooz Raoofi join us at Mack Sennett Studios to impart their knowledge, giving us an insight into their creative processes. On August 17, musicologist, DJ and producer Chris Holmes will be joining us to lead a remix masterclass and live performance before holding a Q&A. This is available for all students and graduates to attend, and to RSVP you can head to the Eventbrite page.

Chris Holmes has worked with the likes of Disney & Rockstar Games both as a composer and consultant, as well as being responsible for bringing together an elite creative class of film and music producers, fine artists, writers and actors at events he produces himself with his DJ and events collective known as The Embassy. Chris has produced events and curated the talent for Los Angeles mayoral elect Eric Garcetti, Rolling Stone Magazine, NPR, The Black Keys, Atoms for Peace, Daft Punk and Questlove of the Roots and helped to create the magical screening of the Breaking Bad finale at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. As well as being a consultant for various tech companies including Native Instruments, Sonos, Audeze Headphones and Novation/Focusrite, Chris is a member of rock band Ashtar Command. He has produced alongside Joshua Radin, Felix da Housecat, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Har Mar Superstar and has remixed everyone from Radiohead to David Bowie, The Beatles, Fischerspooner and FUN.
