This week Sonic Academy proudly welcomes brand new tutor Matthew Anthony for an all-new course in How To Make 'Alien Eyes', his brand new-genre busting track!
Hailing from LA, Matt set up the label Perfect Driver which has grown in success mainly due to his persistent drive and passion as a one-man operation, building his roster of producers and artists from the ground up.
Over these 20 videos we get to see Matt's experimental and creative mind in full flow as he builds this awesome track from scratch, creating a club smasher that could be defined as 'Tech House' but ultimately a tricky one to categorise!
Starting with the kick, bass and signature percussive elements that he's amassed while creating previous tracks, we move onto some truly innovative and individual synth lines before using the mac's own speech function to provide the vocals. Once all the elements are in place we then move on to the arrangement stage using automation, space-age effects, and builds to create tension before the driving, groove-laden drops, and then check out a quick mix and master so we can export the tune ready for DJ's to get their hands on.
This is a tutorial that showcases Matt's passion for creating new sounds and definitely one worth joining on this out-of-this-world journey!
