Welcome to the deadmau5 studio. Meet Joel, the man behind the mau5head, and learn what he's got planned for your class in electronic music production.
Topics include: Introduction to the class
Good sounds are rarities, things that make your ears pop up when you hear it for the first time, something unexpected. [SOUND PULSING] [MOUSE CLICKING] Part of being original, part of having a sound, is being able to create music, or effects, or processes that can't be recreated. That's what makes you unique. This class is just a good primer for anyone wanting to get involved more actively into the production of electronic music. The way that I communicate ideas might not be super anecdotal, or-- I don't know-- funny, or helpful. Because I'll tell you right now, I'm pretty socially inept as is. And I'm just going to go through my methodology of what I think when I'm creating melodies, or how I work when I'm systematically producing music. I'm not really afraid of giving away some arcane knowledge about my creation techniques. Because this is more designed for you to develop your own, as opposed to just straight up ripping me. I would be pretty thrilled to know that at least one person took one thing away from us, which is pretty much what I hope people take away from my music, is kind of what I do it. And you have to think that if you can impact one person with your music, then it is pretty much worth it, I think, and that you are definitely doing something positive. This is deadmau5. And this is my MasterClass.
Before he was deadmau5, all Joel Zimmerman wanted for Christmas was old toasters to take apart. Now, you can watch him take his music apart. In his first-ever online class, Joel teaches you how he approaches melodies, mixing and mastering to make unique sounds you can't find in a cookie cutter sample pack. You'll not only get his lessons, you'll learn how to create your own music without spending money on million dollar gear.
very good class, I learnt some precious information.
Simplified and clear! Honest, real life approach! Thank you very much DEADMAU5 ; )
I am a saxophone player/composer with no real EDM experience. I don't even particularly like most of what I hear. But I loved this class, learned a lot, am inspired to use what I learned in my own areas of interest, and am extremely happy to have taken it. Joel is a great, down-to-earth teacher and is extremely good at what he does. Thanks for offering this class!
always a good way to learn from the pros. Good to see i have some knowledge before hand that isn't too far away, it has helped me recognize i'm progressing at a moderate speed and not too far behind to still have a chance to make it big!
