Bob Moses on Ableton

Bob Moses Ableton Interview
Bob Moses is a two man music project consisting of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance, hailing from Brooklyn, NY. They have distinguished themselves by their ability to flawlessly combine organic and electronic music, and their brand of pop-influenced Deep House has been well-received by fans. From their start on the Frank & Tony EPs on esteemed Scissor and Thread imprint in 2012 to 2015’s Days Gone By LP on Domino, the duo have come a long way. We’re no strangers to the sound of Bob Moses, as we’ve hosted the duo in Boston on a few occasions already, including Mmmmaven’s 4-Year Anniversary party, a night at Make It New, and a spot in the 2015 Together Festival.

Ableton makes it easy to layer sounds and samples quickly. We can record a loop from vinyl, time stretch it, pitch it up or down, cut bits out, totally change the groove…all in less than a minute. -Tom

Bob Moses are also big fans of Ableton Live, the Digital Audio Workstation software we teach in our music production courses, and use it extensively for both producing and performing music. The folks over at Ableton sat down for an interview with the two to discuss how they use Ableton Live as a part of their set-up. You can read the full interview here, and listen to some more of Bob Moses’ music below.
