COCKTAIL PARTY EFFECT
Bitwig Creative

Starts June 24th 2021

Lessons delivered by CPE aka Charlie Baldwin
soundcloud
Drawn by his appetite for powerful rhythmical forms and inspired by the likes of Daphne Oram, The Residents and Captain Beefheart - Eric uses a background in sound design, knowledge of hacking VST software and adapted spring reverbs and other hardware, to create a truly unique vision of contemporary electronic music. It sits somewhere between Jeff Mills, Aphex Twin & Squarepusher - held together by a connective UK Bass Music spinal cord.
A weird but intriguing beast.
Having made initial waves on Cold Recordings and Osiris, Eric Baldwin's recent album release on Tectonic entitled ’Cocktail Party Effect’, brings his South London roots to Berlin for an all-weekender, under strobe lights.
