Based in Toulouse, France, Les Siestes Électroniques hosts concerts, workshops, and club nights focusing on emerging and established electronic musicians and digital artists. Last Fall, Les Siestes Électroniques sent a delegation to Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, to conduct Ableton Live workshops with local musicians.
Everyone loves the sounds of the TR-808 - whether from the original machine or the multisampled Drum Racks included in Ableton's Drum Machines, the 808 is a classic in sound and design.
