todayFebruary 16, 2022 451 1
Electronic Music Conference (EMC) is excited to reveal the EMC Masterclass Program as part of ‘The Reboot’ one-day conference, Tuesday 5 April at the Powerhouse Museum. TheEMC Masterclass Program has been designed with a dedicated focus on independent artists stunted from two years of disruptions. Some of Australia’s most innovative and inspiring artists – Nina Las Vegas, Human Movement and Setwun – will each host an intensive full-day of masterclasses located at The Lab inside the Powerhouse Museum. Each host will spend a full day with 25 participants in each group, experiencing three 90-minute sessions across each of these pillars:
Create – all about music-making
Perform – all about live performance development and DJing
Amplify – marketing, branding, promoting yourself and engaging with fans, brands and media, online and offline
Each masterclass host has been handpicked to take participants on a thorough end-to-end journey throughout the day, providing a valuable, intimate, thought-provoking and socially engaging opportunity to hone skills with experts in electronic and dance music. The program caters to a range of skill sets and experiences, including beginners.
