Bali’s DESØNER collective is relaunching its electronic music school at a new studio located within the cavernous-yet-cosy industrial building of Mejan, which they revamped last year.
The course will run for one and a half months, consist of around 15 classes, and are available for those who speak English, Indonesian and Russian.
Divided into two main parts, the first half of the course covers basic sound theory, structure, beatmatching and mixing, forming full one-hour sets and mix recording alongside multiple practice sessions.
For the second half of the course, students will be introduced to more advanced mixing techniques, set build-ups, mixing various genres and more set recordings.
Those who are interested can even learn how to mix vinyl records or go through the basics of electronic music production using Ableton.
Students who don’t have the necessary equipment to continue practising at home can rent out DESØNER’s studio, which can also be used for recording sessions as well as booked for individual classes.
Included in the studio setup are Pioneer CDJ 3000, Allen & Heath xone 96 and Technics 1200 turntables.
Once the course has finished, DESØNER has hinted at picking a number of standout students to perform at one of their events.
