Mad Zach


Posted on: February 7th, 2020

Globally renowned music producer, performer and educator Mad Zach has teamed up with SAE Creative Media Institute and Plasma Collective to deliver free and exclusive world-class electronic music masterclasses across the country during February.

Creatively aligned, Mad Zach and SAE Institute are at the forefront of innovative educational design and delivery – and championing the application of creative sound techniques.

As an artist, Mad Zach has over 20 Million YouTube views, 10+ million plays on Spotify, DJ and label support from the likes of Aphex Twin, Tipper, Bassnectar, G Jones, Eprom, Claude Von Stroke and Deadmau5, as well as extensive international tour and festival experience. Audiences will gain insight into how Zach has turned his passion into a globally successful career.


A well-respected leader in the electronic music scene, Zach will be sharing his trade secrets at the two-hour masterclasses, guiding audiences through the process of building an original sound pack in Ableton Live, drawing influences from hip hop, glitch, drum and bass, dub and trap and using the pack to write a fleshed out track. Participants will be encouraged to engage in the creative process with Zach, as well as ask questions along the way.

Combining the masterclass events with a national tour, this will be Zach’s third time visiting Australia after an extensive Berlin residency, and the San Francisco native says he can’t wait to come back.

“I love to connect with local producers in the places I travel and to share what I can, it’s always a learning experience for me too! I’m also looking forward to sharing new sounds and ideas with the local music community in Australia.”

Executive General Manager of SAE Global, Lee Aitken, said SAE was proud to host a world-leader in electronic music at locations across Australia.

“Mad Zach is an international innovator who is doing exciting things within the music industry. We are thrilled to give audiences the opportunity to learn from and network with the world’s best.”

Mad Zach’s masterclasses will be held at the following locations:

● 6 February, SAE Byron Bay

● 10 February, SAE Sydney

● 13 February, QQQ ST (hosted by Plasma Studio)

● 18 February, SAE Brisbane
