ABLETON LIVE WORKSHOP
Share this event Visit website

Live electronica performers Pitch Black and Tom COSM present a free workshop covering how they use Ableton Live on stage. These two New Zealand-based acts have developed a formidable reputation in the Ableton community for their live performances, and also their willingness to share their skills and inspire others to explore the unparalleled creativity offered by Ableton Live. Both acts will demonstrate their performance setups and discuss their philosophies and techniques of performing live electronic music.

Topics covered will include: bringing your songs from the studio to the stage, building your Live Sets, MIDI controllers, freeing yourself from the computer, triggering video, and much more.


Entry is free to the workshop, which will run from 6:30 to 7:30pm, followed by an informal Q&A session, prior to performances by both acts later in the evening. Ableton will be supplying door-prizes to lucky attendees.

About Pitch Black and Tom COSM

Ableton Forum regulars Pitch Black (Paddy Free and Michael Hodgson) have been performing their unique style of dub-tech, combined with live multimedia visuals, around the world for more than 10 years. Well respected on the live circuit, they have performed in the United Kingdom, USA, Japan, Australia, and across Europe from Ireland to Croatia. Their four albums have received rave reviews from the international music press for their genre-bending bass-heavy style.

Mike and Paddy will demonstrate how their Live Sets are geared for total remote operation via MIDI controllers without referencing the computer screen or touching the mouse. They will demonstrate their techniques for taking material recorded in the studio and re-triggering it on stage in spontaneous ways. As well as showing how they perform hands-on dub mixes entirely within Live, they will explain their methods of live video-triggering, creating their video show spontaneously in real-time.

Tom Cosm is a live laptop performer from New Zealand who has dedicated a large chunk of his musical career to feeding the Live community with unique workshops and free video tutorials. Keeping his music independent of labels and money from sales, he offers everything for free and relies on word of mouth as his main method of promotion. Visit Tom’s website for more information, music and video tutorials.

Tom’s workshop will be aimed towards producers/DJs who are interested in moving out of the studio and into the world of live, or wish to find out easy ways to make their existing set more live. Topics include the benefits of playing a real Live set; manipulating your music in real time; how to convert your existing tunes into a "live ready" set; a realtime example of how easy it can actually be using Tom's personally developed techniques and software macros (which will be provided for free to anyone), and neat things you can do with your music once you begin, so you can start to become more confident in experimenting with your new Live Set.
