Book Signing – Music Theory for Electronic Music Producers

May 25, 2018 @ 6:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Free 1/2 hour Q&A and book signing from the man that literally wrote the book on Music Theory for Electronic Music Producers, Dr. J. Anthony Allen!


The book is published by Slam Academy, marking Slam Academy’s first foray into print publication. We think of ourselves as a content-focused company, so this isn’t too far of a stretch for us.

The book can be purchased on Amazon


Synopsis of the Book:

The book covers all the fundamentals of music theory, but is written using the language of the DJ and Producer – not the classical musician. It includes “analysis” projects to look at the harmonic and melodic ideas in songs by popular producers including Zedd, Boards of Canada, Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Bonobo, Richie Hawtin, Moby, Skrillex, and Aphex Twin.
