Ableton Live: Production 101
On Wednesday, July 14th, Dubspot presents a FREE Ableton workshop featuring Los Angeles native Thavius Beck who will be teaching another installment of his ongoing Production 101 series in Ableton Live. Thavius is a composer of mercurial soundtracks for uncertain times conjoining various strains of electronic music to arrive at a daringly ambitious sound. An exceptional programmer, engineer, multi-instrumentalist and certified Ableton Live instructor, Thavius Beck’s many talents allow him to take music from idea to completion with an uncompromising vision and ear. This workshop is FREE and open to the public so the curriculum is designed around the demands of those in attendance. From basic to deep, various techniques are explained and explored, as well as some more esoteric approaches toward music creation on Ableton Live. In addition to the two hour workshop, there will be a DJ performance by DJ Heru and then a live performance from Baths, Thavius Beck and Blackbird. During the performances, certain aspects of the performer’s setup will be displayed on a screen so participants can get a better understanding of what the artist is doing on stage. The audience will have a very unique opportunity to see what goes into creating the live performances.
