Our friends at Ableton have been kind enough to spotlight some of the exciting workshops taking place at Together 5’s District Hall headquarters in the Seaport District throughout this weekend:

We’re proud to present Ableton Spaces at Together Center for Together Boston 2014, in collaboration with Boston’s Mmmmaven school and Certified Trainer Loudon Stearns. See below for a full rundown of Ableton workshops taking place May 16 and 17, featuring special guest artists.

Special guest artist Natasha Kmeto will deconstruct her live setup, including a look at how she achieves live vocal processing in a manner that suits her music.
