Point Blank to Hold Free Masterclasses at Future Music Forum Barcelona

The Point Blank masterclasses – hosted by Point Blank’s Creative Director JC Concato – are free to attend for all Future Music Forum delegates. For those who are interested in attending, our partnership entitles our audience (that’s you!) to save over 30% off the ticket price for the event on 13th-15th September, whilst Point Blank students and graduates are eligible for 50% off by emailing

We’re delighted to feature as part of the programme which also includes speakers from Universal, Warner Bros Records, Vevo and Music XRay. This is the latest music industry event in what has already been an incredibly busy year for Point Blank that has seen us taking our workshops and masterclasses around the globe as a programming partner at Sonar+D in Barcelona, Seazone in Poland, Palm Expo in Mumbai, IMS Ibiza and IMS College Malta.

Point Blank’s JC Concato will be hosting masterclasses at Sonopro in Barcelona as a part of Future Music Forum

From label owners and managers to music technology entrepreneurs and schools, the annual Future Music Forum gathers over 300 top music industry figures from around the world to exchange their views on how music is being shared in the digital age and to discuss new developments in music technology. JC will be opening the Wednesday of the event with a masterclass in mixing, deconstructing a student-recreated version of Massive Attack’s ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ to demonstrate working with both live and electronic elements. Following this, he’ll be going on to lead a masterclass in mastering, taking the audience through every step of the mastering process and sharing some essential techniques.
