This performative presentation will explore how musicians can adapt their studio productions for live shows, as a means of facilitating dynamic performance sets that align with their artistry. We will discuss a multitude of considerations like physical setup, virtuosity, solo versus group settings, and improvisation.
Use Syntakt like an effects processor, intricate details, outside of the box, MiDI feedback loop, multi voice synth patch.
Berklee faculty member Val Jeanty will demonstrate her unique performance setup as a turntablist, drummer, and electronic music producer, consisting of drums, a DJ rig, sampler, and live effects processors.
Also, learn about Sunhouse Drum Sensors as a part of Val’s workflow and performance setup. Sunhouse makes a revolutionary tool for music production and performance, which is a hybrid drum setup and an electronic drum kit in one. Sunhouse can control melodies, harmonies, and samples all from a drum set. This allows musical expression from real drums with the freedom and unlimited sounds from digital control. A drum set can become a new source of timbre, a new hybrid musical instrument.
In this session, Rishabh Rajan will demonstrate how the MiMu Gloves is used in live electronic performance. Paired with Ableton Live, the MiMu gloves works as a wireless gestural controller that can be used to remote control effects parameters, trigger chords, perform arpeggiations of predefined chords and even trigger live drums in Ableton Live. Rishabh will demonstrate how he uses the gloves alongside traditional controllers with faders and pads for a unique hybrid approach to live performance techniques.
