In Point Blank’s latest tutorial Ski Oakenfull deconstructs Caribou’s Can’t Do Without you…
Dan Snaith’s Caribou are one of the most unique acts in electronic music, fusing ambient tones and rich melodies with powerful drums and processed vocals. When they first uploaded Can’t Do Without You, the first track from their new album, old and new fans went crazy over the delicate vocals and powerful driving synths and drums. We loved it too and decided to give it the deconstruction treatment with our Electronic Music Composition course developer Ski Oakenfull using Ableton Live.
If you like what you see in our deconstruction, you can take our Electronic Music Composition (EMC) course – part of our Ableton Certificate – to learn more about how music theory is used in electronic music. You’ll explore scales, chords, key signatures, arrangements and melodies as well as getting your hands-on exclusive deconstructions from Avicii, Julio Bashmore, Skrillex and more.
