This workshops shows you how to creatively use Ableton Live for live performances or live electronics within a band. Madeleine Bloom (Sonic Bloom) gives an introduction into the complex software that allows way more than controllerism and can be meaningfully used in all kinds of different musical styles. Learn how to build your own live performance set that fits your needs and how to integrate Push, other MIDI controllers or real live instruments/vocals into your show. This workshop is hands on and you will at least begin to realize your performance set along the way. If you already have something prepared for it, bring it along and learn how to improve on it. All genres welcome.
