What we'll do
In the final AUGM event for 2019 we have Jordan Donnelley, a local musician and producer who has released two EPs under the name Orches. From the debut EP in 2015, Orches’ single Denial gained considerable public interest. A rant about political ignorance, the track gained consistent airplay on Triple J, and caught the interest of local and overseas music writers.
Heavy Weight, the recent six track EP is the result of Donnelly holding the reigns on all aspects of writing and recording, as well as the engineering process. Jordan is also one half of a new Electronic duo named Scenes where Jordan plays piano, bass and drum machine.
Jordan will be opening up Ableton Live sessions to focus on his approach to song arrangement and production techniques that were used to shape tracks on his recent EP titled Heavy Weight, released in July this year. Combining his knowledge of harmony with a variety of production ideas, most of Jordan's works start at the piano and are then transformed using Ableton Live where songs are developed into complex productions. Jordan will walk you through how parts were constructed and how his influences helped shape the sound of the EP.
In our middle spot AUGM facilitators Matt and Ben will be there to answer any burning Ableton Live and music production related questions!

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.
