ableton festAnne–our awesome DJ and music production instructor–traveled to Berlin this fall to take part in the Ableton Loop Festival and here’s her report! If you’re interested in this kind of stuff, ask us about DJ and Music Production lessons.


Each year, the German city of Berlin creates an amazing, scenic backdrop for an audio/visual festival put on by local music production software company, Ableton. At this eclectic festival, many engineers, artists, educators and developers join from countries around the world to meet and share ideas. Professionals such as Goldie, Nosaj and Susan Rogers (Prince’s sound engineer) gave talks, while others like Pole and Machinedrum taught smaller workshops on analog and digital recording. There were a lot of events and performances going on in the acoustically designed recording spaces of the Funkhaus Berlin, an iconic music venue looking over the river Spree. There were also some great panels including young musicians (Sapphire Slows, Chloe Martini, mobilegirl) who had just crossed the boundary into popularity via soundcloud and other social media. Overall an exciting and inspiring event!
