Beat Lab Academy Beat Lab Academy is an Ableton Certified Training Center born in Los Angeles, California. It’s the brainchild of Yeuda Ben-Atar, who founded the school in 2014. Unsatisfied with how modern music production was being taught via archaic methods – he decided to start a unique music production school with a community-driven focus in Eagle Rock, LA.

By the time Autumn has finally shown up in early November everybody's favorite music company, Ableton will be ready to host its international music conference Loop. What is this conference all about?
The name was inspired by live-looping/loop-cutting, both are relatively new methods of performing/producing music on the fly by solo or group artists. The conference is described by Ableton as, "three days of discussions, performances, presentations, studio sessions, installations and interactive workshops designed to share ideas at the forefront of music, technology, and creative practice". The conference will be held at the historic Funkhaus Nalepastraße radio station in Berlin for the third year.
