I'll be doing two presentations at Ableton's Loop event in Berlin in November.
The first one on Friday 10th November will be a deconstruction of Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack:

Here's the blurb from the Loop website:
Ski is an accomplished keyboard player, artist, producer, remixer and composer whose work credits include Joey Negro, Incognito, Gilles Peterson, Galliano and the Bays.
As a result, Ski brings a high level of musicianship, technical ability and music industry experience to his role heading up course development at award-winning Point Blank Music School, where his stellar work includes developing the BA (Hons) Music Production & Sound Engineering degree which is taught in the London and online schools.
Whilst developing the groundbreaking Electronic Music Composition online module, Ski patented a unique 'Deconstruction' teaching method, a fascinating way of breaking down great classic and current tracks into their constituent parts to show how the beats, melodies and arrangement were put together. This method provides a uniquely soft approach to learning important elements of music theory and has proved highly popular with Point Blank's aspiring producer/composers, and Ski has since taken the format to industry events worldwide including Sonar, ADE and IMS Ibiza, giving insights into hundreds of tracks for students to enjoy and learn from.
