Mistakes to Avoid in Mixing & Mastering with Abe Duque + 343 Labs Open House

Abe Duque Mixing Masterclass version 2.jpg

Techno legend, producer, DJ, and 343 Labs instructor Abe Duque shares some of the common mistakes to avoid while Mixing and Mastering. Since the rapid technological developments of digital audio workstations and software plugins, Mixing and Mastering has become infinitely more affordable, allowing producers to achieve mixes that rival those created at multi-million dollar studios.

With a career that started in the early days of house and techno at New York’s notorious Limelight, Abe Duque has been releasing tracks since the early 90s, on labels such as International Deejay Gigolo, Tension, Abuse Industries, and Rapture, as well as remixing tracks for household names such as Chemical Brothers and Pet Shop Boys, Abe later turned his attention to education, where he is now considered one of the most respected educators in his field.

Hosted in a 7k sq ft space in East Williamsburg (a video production facility called Lytehouse Studios, 356 Devoe Street) located in the heart of Brooklyn’s most musical neighborhood, this year's exhibit is scheduled for June Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 (from noon to 7pm on Saturday, and from 11am to 6pm on Sunday). We are excited to be having our very own Abe Duque presenting on how to integrate hardware synthesizers into your DAW setup at this year’s synth expo. With a career that started in the early days of house and techno at New York’s notorious Limelight, Abe has been at the head of the acid-house and underground-techno table since his earliest releases way back in 1992. He has tons of experience performing and producing with all different types of synthesizers as well as an extensive resume teaching music technology.

Songwriting for Electronic Musicians with Cândida Borges: Masterclass + Open House

Some of the biggest songs are collaborations between a songwriter and a producer. But it isn’t always easy for these two people to communicate their ideas. In this masterclass songwriter, vocalist, and producer Cândida Borges will take a deeper look at what is required for a songwriter and producer to build a musical relationship and meaningful collaborations. She will also break down the various elements that make up a song, from the original emotion and idea, to melody + topline, lyrics, chords + harmony, to arranging these ideas to form a complete song. 

Cândida Borges is one of New York City’s most sought-after singer songwriters and music educators. Classically trained, she holds multiple music degrees and teaches in universities around the world.  She is equally versed in her native Brazilian roots, as she is in contemporary music, jazz, and electronic styles. As an artist Cândida’s signature vocal sound can be heard on recordings such as “Girar O Mundo” (Pattern Drama), while her work as a producer and song-writer has been featured in film scores, theater productions, and art installations, as seen on her website. Candida teaches songwriting at 343 Labs.

An Evening with Andrew Huang (SOLD OUT)

Andrew Huang.png

Andrew Huang is a Toronto-based music and video producer with a penchant for working within absurd, self-imposed limitations. 

A versatile and prolific musician, he has released over 2,000 songs in a massive range of genres. He is perhaps best known for the strange feats of musicianship which have earned him over 1.6 million subscribers and 190 million views on his YouTube channel: He has rapped 300 words in a minute, composed a classical piece in the shape of a unicorn head, and covered numerous pop songs using only the sounds of items mentioned in the lyrics - for instance, "99 Red Balloons" played on red balloons. In addition, his content runs the gamut from music education to equipment reviews to interactive projects with his fans.

No Livestream tonight unfortunately, but we will be filming the event, and will be posting the masterclass on YouTube so check back soon!

WE ARE SOLD OUT, but we kept 5 tickets to give away on the day of the event. If you want to be considered for a free ticket, please enter your email address below and you will be notified on the day of the event.
