Dubspot @ SXSW Music 2013! Free DJ / Producer EDU Sessions, Tech Demos, Friends of Friends +

Dubspot descends upon SXSW once again, intent on teaching the world to make music! Come join us for education sessions, performances, demonstrations, discussions, and some relaxation at the biggest technology and music fest in the West…

Over the course of the past three decades, Austin’s SXSW (South by Southwest) conference has become one of the world’s premier music and technology events. Not ones to be left out of a party, Dubspot has been attending annually to present what we are doing and simultaneously get a taste of what’s new in technology, film and sound. For SXSW 2013 we have assembled a team of educators, creators, and thinkers to present two panels on music production and we’ve partnered with Flavorpill, Microsoft, and Friends of Friends for some unique events that happen during the week.
