The AES New York 2019 Convention is introducing an afternoon dedicated to electronic music producers. For the first time in its 70-plus year history, electronic producers from across the globe will come together for an afternoon of sessions covering the disciplines of the craft. Over the course of four hours, award-winning industry professionals will share their intimate knowledge of electronic music production. AES New York Electronic Dance Music Track Events will take place Thursday, October 17, and are open to ‘All Access’ registered attendees during the New York 2019 Pro Audio Convention, October 16 – 19 at the Jacob Javits Center.
The day kicks off with multi-platinum/GRAMMY-winning mix engineer Ariel Borujow, breaking down a full mix of an electronic music track in the “Mixing EDM Masterclass.” Borujow will discuss all aspects of his approach, from his mindset and communication with the client to the techniques that go into creating the feel while keeping the client’s vision of the production.
Electronic Dance Music Track events continue with the session “The Art & Origins of Sampling: From Vinyl to DAW; From Hip-Hop to Dance Music,” Nate Mars from the Electronic Music Collective will be discussing the fundamentals of the sampling art form used not just by electronic musicians but also by all producers and DJs.
Rounding the afternoon out, Rick Snoman, award-winning remixer, producer and author of the industry standard textbook Dance Music Manual, will walk attendees through the art of a remix. Focusing on the production of great remixes, Snoman will introduce the initial decisions of what to keep, how to develop on the original idea, and how to imprint the remixer’s identity onto the finished product.
