TOA19 Berlin Workshop and ‘Battle of Sounds’

Class Shot_TOA

This summer I had the exciting opportunity of presenting my ‘Loopstation and Sound Laboratory’ Workshop to TOA19 Berlin participants, as well as participating myself in a ‘Battle of the Sounds’ in Studio 3 alongside 4 other incredible electronic artists in a competition to win ‘Native Instruments Komplete 12’ and the ‘Maschine MK3’.

I presented a short 30 minute version of the Workshop especially for this event, regardless of the short time we had, the participants were very curious and brave to join in co-creating a group composition. It was also incredible to see that the ‘front row’ of participants were mainly women, and it brought me more pride to be presenting this unique composition workshop.

In the ‘Battle of Sounds’, each of us electronic musicians played just 1:30 of some of our ‘Best Sounds’ to compete for audience approval. Round after Round of elimination, I won with a raise of hands. It was an incredible feeling to witness so much support for my sounds.
I’m very exciting to begin learning the Maschine MK3 and to begin trying out and composing with the Native Instruments.
