The Digital + Acoustic Sessions are a series of free workshops and performances at Brooklyn’s ShapeShifter Lab that focus on cutting-edge ways to integrate acoustic instruments and Ableton Live – both as a musical and visual platform. Each session will feature a free workshop followed by live performances by musical and digital visual artists integrating live and digital performance.
This month’s Digital + Acoustic Sessions will feature artist, music technologist and associate professor at Berklee, Erin Barra showing techniques for using Ableton Live as a songwriting tool. Erin Barra’s boundary-breaking approach to electronic music has most recently been featured on MusicTech, Ableton.com, Sonic Scoop and Billboard. Through workshops and performances across the country, Barra has introduced audiences to a unique setup that blends an inspiring combination of technology, performance and songwriting. There will also be a presentation on looping by Johnny Butler and live techniques by Ableton Certified Trainer Dan FreeMan (CØm1x). More info can be found here.
