What is COLLAB?

Tailored towards electronic music producers and taking place over two days, COLLAB is an event all about the collaborative process of music production. Over a series of presentations and collaborative creative challenges, participants will gain insight as to how to work together in a collaborative environment, as well as be given a chance to put techniques learned into practice in a fast-paced and hands-on collaborative production challenge hosted at the Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio (MESS). Supported by APRA AMCOS.



Running from 12pm-5pm, Day One will feature a series of talks and presentations from established Australian music industry figures - to be announced. Attendees will then be invited to stick around to network and create new connections over a few drinks and informal conversations. 


Attendance to Day One is FREE but registration is required as spaces are limited. Register now!



Split into two 4-hour sessions, Day Two will see 32 participants (16 per session) split into pairs and given the opportunity to put the skills they learned during Day One into practice. Hosted at MESS, participants will have to work together in their new pair to write, arrange, and produce a track within a 4-hour time period, whilst having access to the vast array of synthesisers and music hardware available as part of the MESS collection. This is an incredible opportunity to get hands-on with the amazing selection of gear that MESS has to offer at an affordable price-point.


Please note: Attendance to Day Two is $25+BF and is via application only. A small number of subsidised tickets will also be provided. Session times are 1pm-5pm and 6pm-10pm. Spaces are strictly limited to 16 participants per session and you will be asked for a time preference in the application form.
