This four-part workshop is an introduction to the music production software Ableton Live. Participants will gain experience recording audio and learning the basics of editing, mixing, and sampling. We’ll also cover musical concepts like time signatures, basic composition strategies, and rhythm. We’ll make SONGS. Participants will also get an introduction to using MIDI keyboards and microphones. As each session builds on the previous one, participants are strongly encouraged to attend all four sessions.
The workshop will be led by VCAM Philadelphia Artist-in-Residence Justin Geller, along with VCAM Maker Arts Space Coordinator and Technician Kent Watson and VCAM Operations Manager James Weissinger.

Most recently he has produced releases from R3DLTTR and Remote Places and in the past has worked with longtime collaborator, Julian Grefe, in the genre-hopping electronic music collective, Pink Skull. Geller is also the Music and Sound Director for Monument Lab, a public art and history project.
