Boiler Room and Native Instruments - two leading innovators shaping music production, performance, and perception - are joining forces to explore creative techniques that have inspired what electronic music is today.
To kick off the series, we're delving into the depths of remixing, re-arranging, and re-editing for the first topic: “Credit to the Edit”. Together we bring New York veteran François K, London’s prime tastemaker Benji B, and DJ and journalist Greg Wilson to look at the history and technological innovation behind editing and remixing. Topics will range from the early days of the 12” extended disco edit, through to new tools like the open Stems format, which is modernizing the age-old excitement of breathing new life into existing works. The panel will be live streamed from the ICA in London, along with showcase performances by François K himself, and Berlin bass ambassador Sarah Farina.
Viewers are encouraged to get involved by asking questions the chat room and via social media.
Unfortunately, Benji B was not able to attend the session due to travel difficulties. Thankfully, Outlook creative director and lead singer of Gentleman's Dub Club, Jonathan Scratchley, was a very apt replacement.
