Join EcoSonic - an intensive educational, creative, and community-based music production retreat with Lo.renzo and Sun Anga. The course is an intensive immersion into Ableton Live designed for beginners and people with and without a musical background.

We offer a space to delve deep into the world of music production, specifically electronic music. The focus is on exploring the possibilities of incorporating live instruments with the electronic realm, pushing boundaries, and breaking traditional norms.

Throughout the retreat, you will have the opportunity to attend workshops and seminars led by experienced and talented music producers, covering a wide range of topics, from the basics of electronic music production to strategies for incorporating live instruments

You will have access to recording equipment and software, allowing you to experiment and explore your own unique sound. 

One of the most valuable aspects of this retreat is the sense of community it fosters. You will connect with like-minded individuals who share a passion for music production. This supportive and collaborative environment provides a sense of belonging and inspires participants to continue their musical journey long after the retreat has ended. You will have a chance to share ideas and learn from one another. You will be able to showcase your work and receive feedback from both your peers and experienced mentors.

“Stefano was a great host and tutor, answering any questions we had and tailoring the course to suit our needs. He has given me the confidence and inspiration to explore and discover what I can do with the Ableton program, creating electronic music and more.”

"Really good intro to a vast piece of software."

“Stefano made the group feel comfortable and never felt like anything was rushed. Was quite emotional for me surprisingly but a lovely container was built so it was a lovely experience.”
