Masterclass with Metrist: Injecting the surreal into a dancefloor

Monday 29th October | 5pm | Studio 1

We are excited to have Joseph Higgins (DMSA Alumni, 2017) back to lead a masterclass. Please note that the session starts at 5pm (not 4:30) and it is relocated to Studio 1.

Metrist is an outlet for Joseph Higgins’ idiosyncratic, constantly evolving dancefloor tailored endeavours. The Brighton based artist’s intensity and sense of humour can be heard through his approach to alien-like sound design and mangled beatwork in his jaunty oddball shaped work. Through his collaborations with labels such as Opal Tapes, Where To Now? and most recently Timedance, Higgins’s work has been described by Hardwax as a “Dare-to-be-different true techno explorer”.

Injecting the surreal into a dancefloor

The session will be looking into how we approach sound design in club music, keeping what is essentially nearly 40 years of electronic music fresh and exciting by adding experimental techniques and approaches to dance music formulas. I will also be talking about working in the industry, how to garner releases and DJ’ing.
