Mister Barrington’s two releases have garnered radio airplay worldwide – including an NPR Feature – on playlists alongside Robert Glasper, Flying Lotus, Louis & Genevieve and Herbie Hancock. The group’s innovative use of music technology has also been recognized through their recent feature in Electronic Musician Magazine (April ’13), an invitation to present for TEDx at UMass Amherst entitled “Innovative Thinking”, and through the support of music companies including Ableton, iZotope, RME, and MONO case.

“In the past decade the laptop has revolutionized the way music is performed and produced, and Ableton has been at the forefront of making the laptop a powerful production and performance tool. The NYC Ableton User Group is a place to learn about this remarkable software and see how guest artists and other attendees are putting it to use.” - Dan Freeman
