Attention New York Ableton users! On Tuesday February 19th from 9:15 – 11pm, our Dubspot Ableton User Group continues with instructor / host Dan Freeman. The event will also feature special guest Fernando Arruda a.k.a. FJAZZ…
Arruda will demonstrate a live performance technique he has developed to allow for seamless mixes in Live between tracks with varying tempos. He will also demo his FJAZZ live setup and explain how to create a “hybrid performance” combining DJ tracks and live instruments. If you’d like to attend, please RSVP at our Facebook Event Page.
Check out this promo video for Arruda’s 2012 release as FJAZZ, Sound Bending, showcasing some of his unique electronic + jazz improv sounds:
“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
