Did you know that #zero1hasmorefun? Let’s enforce the motto!
We have decided to tighten up our collaboration with the mighty Zero1 Music label by presenting a 4-chapter production course led by some of the Zero1 leading artists.
You will get the chance to work side-by-side with the Zero1 music heroes on the production of a real tune to be released on Zero1.
Day 1. Psy Fundamentals: Kick, Bass & Percussions
Joakim (K.i.M./Filterheads/Kryptone) will teach you his kick and bass technique plus drums and rhythms on top. He will show you how to deliver a complete and full power structure as a base for your newborn track.
Day 2. Psytrance Sounds & Composition
Lawrence (Chromatone/Everblast) will follow up by sharing his monumental knowledge on psytrance sound design, providing you with a full range of sound design techniques that will blow your mind and applying it to the track started with K.i.M.
Day 3. Psy Track Intro & Arrangement
Celli (Earthling/Soundaholix/Everblast) is going to school you about his secret arrangement tips and tricks. The sounds of the track previously worked by K.i.M. and Chromatone will find their meaning and start talking to each other!
Day 4. Mixing & Mastering
Patricio (Tron) will teach you how to mix and master your track to get it sounding fat and loud as it can possibly get. The tune elaborated during the previous webinars will be finalized and ready for the dancefloor test.
At the end of the course, the artists will share the project of the track with the full live-course attendees only, for you to manipulate and get enrolled in a remix challenge: the best remix provided will be released on Zero1 Music too!
