Vespers (Vancouver, BC)

Vespers is a beat-making robot that started creating music in the year 2502, then was sent back in time to show humans how to mangle audio using Ableton Live. He makes a unique fusion of heavily edited glitch-hop beats and live instrumentation with sax and an Akai EWI4000S wind synth. His live shows push the envelope of what's possible using Live's looper technology, real time glitch effects, and controllerism with MIDI devices like the Akai APC40 and MPD32.

Resident on Pop + Lock Records, his releases consistently chart in the Beatport top 100. Vespers teaches via HD video tutorials and e-books online through his website and YouTube channel. He also occasionally accepts small groups of advanced students into workshops and one-on-one coaching. Much of his education is focused on creating and performing electronic dance music.

An abundance of high-quality music, Ableton tutorials, e-books, Live set templates and custom racks are available by joining his free mailing list at
