Class I: DJing with Ableton Live and Controllers

Monday, August 11, 20:00--0:00 (doors open 18:00)

This class is designed for Ableton Live beginners and aspiring DJs. We'll cover the basics of DJing with Ableton Live and create DJ sets with songs and loops. We'll learn about mixing a live set, using effects and controllers, and troubleshooting on stage/at the club.

Class II: Sequencing and Sound Design with Ableton Live

Tuesday, August 12, 20:00--0:00 (doors open 18:00)

This advanced class covers arrangement, dynamics, sound design, effects, workflow, tricks and troubleshooting (e.g., eliminating electrical humming noise in a live venue). Participants will have the chance to create their own remix of an existing song with samples. We'll also consider various musical genres. The class will also be of interest to participants focused on radio or film sound recording.

Both classes will be in German.
