Daedelus & Thavius Beck w/ Dubspot LA – Live Streaming Ableton Workshop!

We are excited to present a special workshop for Ableton Live users in Los Angeles on Monday July 18th, 2011 with Thavius Beck and esteemed guests. The Production 101 series was launched by Dubspot instructor Thavius Beck in an effort to create a gathering of talented minds and to teach others about music production. The event has been immensely popular and Beck continues to develop the platform with guest lecturers and performers. We’re quite excited for the guest speaker he’s lined up for this event Alfred Darlington, who many of you may know as DAEDALUS. This will be a very special opportunity for LA’s aspiring and established musicians and producers to pick the brain of one of the most unique talents working in electronic music today.

Ableton Certified Instructor Thavius Beck will begin a 2 hour workshop with a major focus on Ableton Live, production techniques, complex midi mapping, and using the iPad as a midi controller. He will be joined by Alfred Darlington for the latter part of the evening and we look forward to this talented meeting of the minds.

After the workshop, we will have a live performance  by the magnanimous rapping vanguard known to the world as SUBTITLE, who just recently returned from the champagne scented jaws of Berlin with his newest album, “s.h.a.r.k. BRIEF” in tow. In addition to all of this, we will also have HIT+RUN doing live silk screening on the roof… custom t-shirts for the early birds… And as always, live visuals will be provided by OICHO, and the live music starts with our resident dj HERU! 7pm-midnight. Monday, July 18th. FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!”

Love Thavius and Daedelus. This would be great if it could be streamed for those not able to be there.

Wow! Wish I could be there. Last minute flights from Colorado to LA are pricey though. Future web streams would be a great to look into. I would clear my schedule for this, for sure

thanks so much to Thavius for a great presentation and letting us all in on his approach. It is always cool to see how someone else is using the same tools in a different way than yours.
