Should be a good afternoon. This is a totally free event. Starts at 2pm. It's open to everyone and you need know nothing about music or software to attend. No RSVP required. Basically you're welcome to just come along and listen to my presentation, have a play around with the facility (and my rig from No Anchor) and come and go as you please.
Here is the brief:
Ableton Live Undead: The Basics of Using Live To Make Drone Metal
Facilitator: Ian Rogers
Ableton Live is a software-based recording and performance platform typically used in the creation of experimental and electronic based music. Renown for its non-linear arrangement, beat making and live looping capabilities, Live can be used in a wide variety of musical settings.
In recent years, Brisbane musician Ian Rogers (No Anchor/Ambrose Chapel) has developed strategies for using the software to forward his drone, metal and ambient music projects.
This workshop serves both as a beginners guide to Ableton Live and an exploration of its use as a tool for creating and shaping heavier, darker sounds. Attendees will be led through the basics of Ableton recording environment, studio recording of bass and guitar, looping, synth-making and live performance.
