Bandesnaci: will be demonstrating an Ableton Live set template designed to be used with the Push for on-the-spot music creation, allowing for musical improvisation, jamming, and a note-by-note approach to electronic music performance. Focus will be on the live looping technique and the context of technology and setup limitations as a boost for overall musician creativity.

Mark Towers: will be breaking down a remix project and focussing on the creative workflows in Live 9 including, sampling and resampling, using the clip properties to dramatically alter audio parts, synthesis, effects processing and mixing.

Jam: if you would like to get involved in the jam, just bring your laptop or electronic instrument along and plug in, ideally MIDI sync would be good, so if you have a MIDI interface or a sound card with MIDI ins, bring it along too.
