With the first batch of Push units soon to arrive, we’d like to share some videos that illustrate a few of the possibilities with Ableton’s new instrument. We sent some Push units to Ableton Certified Trainers around the world - now we’d like to introduce a new regular series, Push on Film, where we’ll showcase some of our favorite videos of Push.
For our latest Push on Film feature, we'd like to share some inspiring videos of Push jams from the community. Starting from scratch, these performances build up parts into full tracks, in real time. From banging electro drums to soft, subtle piano solos, Push is an instrument built for jamming.
First up, Andrew Huang builds the drums, bass, and chiptune hits for his track, "Suits", before getting on the mic and rapping while continuing to tweak the beat:
Up next, duo Girls n Boomboxes - featuring Certified Trainer Lenny Kiser and Harald Boyesen - jam out their track “Now in Control”. As you can see, Push plays well both on its own and as part of an ensemble:
Taking a break from the beats, Ableton’s own Huston Singletary plays a gorgeous piano improvisation on Push, demonstrating the nuance of the velocity-sensitive pads:
Finally, Mr. Elastic flexes his 808 muscles in real-time with “It’s a Trap”, while Live chugs along in the background:
