Whether you are making music with Ableton Live or any one of a host of IOS apps, Ableton Link enables you to play in time with other musicians over a network. On Friday May 20th at 5pm, Ableton’s Ben Casey gives you the lowdown and introduces some of his favorite Link compatible apps. We’ll conclude the session with a live jam featuring Ableton and Mmmmaven instructors.
Ben Casey is a Brooklyn-based electronic musician, Ableton Certified Trainer, and overall music tech nerd. When he’s not surrounded by wires and drum machines or tinkering with Max for Live, Ben teaches Ableton Live to musicians across all genres, from avant-garde to zydeco. While living in London he earned an MMUS from Goldsmiths University, and released tracks on the inscrutable UK-based label Werk Discs. Upon returning to the US, he founded a boutique electronic instrument business. A Live user since its very beginning, Ben is always happy to show off his boxed copy of Version 1.
He works with Grammy-winning artists to integrate Live into their existing production and performance workflows, consulting on numerous live tours, theater productions, and art installations.
With a focus on teaching the tips and tricks that allow musicians at any skill level to harness the power of Live, Ben is available for one-on-one sessions and group lessons in person, or Skype lessons worldwide.
