Power Mac Center sets the stage for the return of its extraordinary musical fete Sync Sessions, with the introduction of Masterclass sessions by OPM legends and technical trainings on music production apps. Completing the experience are in-store live performances from homegrown independent acts.
Sync Sessions is an audio experience that showcases the power of apps, accessories, and Apple devices in music-making. This year, it will additionally feature intense workshops from music legends including no less than “Mr. Pure Energy” Gary Valenciano on September 27. This will be followed by Urbandub’s Gabby Alipe on October 1 and Raimund Marasigan on October 16. All Masterclass sessions will be held at Power Mac Center Greenbelt 3 from 1-4 PM.
“This year’s Power Mac Center Sync Sessions aims to encourage more artists to experiment on music production--be it for songs, sound effects, movies, or home videos. We hope that by providing the technical knowhow through our brand ambassadors and invited experts, we’ll be able to spark greater interest in the use of Apple technology in creating music,” said Power Mac Center Marketing Director Joey Alvarez.
The Masterclass sessions will be supported by Logic Pro X training for beginners, to be conducted by Ms. Teresa Barrozo, Music professor at De La Salle - College of St. Benilde. There are three schedules available: September 25 and October 9 at Power Mac Center SM Aura, and October 23 at Power Mac Center The Annex at SM North EDSA (1-4 PM). These are free of charge and interested participants are asked to register at <tinyurl.com/SyncSessions2016>.
Following the past two successful editions of Sync Sessions, this year will continue to celebrate Filipino talent by showcasing the musical prowess of homegrown independent artists. The in-store mini-concerts will be set in motion by ambient synth-pop singer-songwriter BP Valenzuela, who has been producing music with machines and her laptop since she was 12. Catch her at Power Mac Center TriNoma on September 24.
The six-piece indie folk/rock band The Ransom Collective will make feet stomp to their folk pop beats at Power Mac Center SM Megamall on October 8. Meanwhile, producer and beatmaker CRWN performs with Jess Connelly on October 22 at Power Mac Center Power Plant Mall. All in-store performances are open to the public and start at 4 PM.
