In Composing with Ableton, we will study and use the well known music-making software Ableton Live. We will consider sound in Ableton from a variety of perspectives, ranging from popular music vocabularies to experimental sound practices. This project-based class emphasizes development of technical knowledge in pursuit of individual style and genre-crossing dialogue. Topics include: fundamental techniques of electronic composition, sonic approaches to genre-bending work, real-time interaction and control, and interfacing with MaxMSP via Max for Live.
