Dubspot NY Ableton Live User Group
Performance with Ableton Live

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 from 9:30pm-11:00pm EST

Featuring Brent Arnold and Dan Freeman aka CØm1x (Dubspot Instructor)

Brent Arnold is a composer, producer, and cellist. His eclectic, cinematic approach is distinctive in his solo performances, his film scores, and his productions for other artists. His wildly unorthodox cello playing incorporates classical and non-classical techniques, live electronic processing, and elements of experimental electronica, rock, improvisation, and Arabic and African music.

He composed the cello music for Louis C.K.’s tv show Louie, as well as numerous films and shorts and has recorded or performed with Reggie Watts, DJ/Rupture, Filastine, Modest Mouse, Death in Vegas, Eyvind Kang, and Jherek Bischoff, among many others.

“For my Ableton User Group session, I’ll be demonstrating my new live performance setup, which runs my cello into Ableton, controlled by a Keith McMillan 12-step foot controller and an iPad running TouchOSC with a custom layout. Most of the music is built live in the moment, using Ableton’s looper to record cello parts on the fly, and then tweak them with a custom TouchOSC interface, and then add more parts.”

To attend, please RSVP to the Facebook event and arrive early for sign-in. This FREE event is open to the public.

This program is about learning Ableton Live by going through the entire process of being an artist, by developing your own sound through a series of sketches and experimentation. You will also learn the ins and outs of this powerful software through a series of exercises designed to help you master the steps involved in producing your own music. After a level of getting familiar with the tools that Ableton has to offer, you will then develop your sonic ideas into full-length tracks. You will be exposed to a variety of approaches to arrangement and composition, storytelling techniques, ways of creating tension and drama in your music. At the end of the day, it is the sum total of your choices as an artist that define your sound, and levels 2 – 6 will give you the experience of actually completing tracks to add to your portfolio.
