Next Meetup

Ableton Live User Group Melbourne (September 2018)
This month's featured artist is Beatrice Lewis. (beatrice, Haiku Hands, Kardajala Kirridarra) beatrice is an artist that carries you deep into the textured soundscapes of her cinematic bass music. A vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and electronic producer from Melbourne, she has an artistic bipolarity and sophistication that weaves itself through every beat, bar and polyrhythm. She creates compelling and intimate music with a gritty distorted edge that immediately strikes a chord with audiences and Beatrice has recently garnered industry attention with an invitation to attend the inaugural Red Bull Music Academy in Montreal in 2016, as well as participation in The Seed conference and two Arts Victoria grants to fund her premier release in the upcoming months. Beatrice's presentation will focus on creating timbres and interesting sonic landscapes primarily using audio and audio effects. She will open up a track and go through the sounds and show how she came to make them. Our middle spot is filled by Jimmy Nicholas, (aka Mongen) who is an honours student at Melbourne University. After completing his Bachelor of Music Performance at Box Hill Tafe in 2014, he spent two years living in Japan, teaching English and developing new ways to approach beat-making and the live performance of. He began studying honours at Melbourne University this year with the goal of improving his craft and sharing these ideas with the community. Jimmy's presentation will focus on two areas: compositional techniques in lo-fi hip-hop through common signal processes such as reverb and compression, and live performance through improvised controllerism and Ableton integration. Both are part of his continuing research project at Melbourne University. Our once a month production meetup is a place where you can meet like-minded producers, discuss production techniques and listen to other musicians talk about their own creative processes. Entry is free, and we welcome all attendees no matter what level of experience you have with Ableton Live. The user group is a chance to meet with a diverse range of producers, share knowledge, get feedback, meet and hang out with other like-minded enthusiasts.
