Track Deconstruction at Sonar Barcelona: Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc.
Last month, Point Blank Music School returned to take part in the programming of Sonar +D, the daytime tech showcase that accompanies Barcelona’s Sonar Festival. This event sees thousands of creatives attending to interact with some of the latest innovations in technology, creativity and more.
As part of their involvement this year, Head of Curriculum Ski Oakenfull provided attendees with another of his celebrated track deconstructions, this time breaking down Gorillaz’ ‘Feel Good Inc.’, off their 2005 album ‘Demon Days’. Find out more about the many ways you can learn music production with Point Blank here.
In a style now familiar to anyone who watches these videos, Ski reconstructs the song from its constituent parts in Ableton’s Live 10 software. Everything, from how to program the drums to implementing the track’s original acapella, is included here.
As ever, the amount of creativity and innovation on offer at Sonar +D was mindblowing. To check out more about what the festival is about, more of Point Blank’s coverage of Sonar 2018 can be found here.
