One Man Nation

With “organisational centre-pin” Taku gone to set up the turntable concert and and Jorgen electing to not present his sequencers himself (a choice I fully support, even if I wished I had known about it sooner; in the end it worked out fine) it seemed up to Marc (One Man Nation) and me to organise the sequencing session ourselves. It was starting to look like the daring session on popular music was getting a bit more daring still….


Marc Chia - Rhythm and Sequencing for Live Performances

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

Hi All!

Hope you all are enjoying the Jamboree so far!  Later today, I will be giving a presentation on Rhythm and Sequencing for Live Performances.

I’m going to talk about blurring the lines between the use of live and concrete sounds in the context of a live performance followed by electronic rhythm creation and sequencing using Ableton live and Pure Data.

First Part: -
Having been playing with a Monome and a midi controller over the past year, I am trying to push the envelop further in regards to live performance.  Recently I have augmented my new live sets with inclusion of live table banging/foot stomping going hand in hand with concrete sounds.

Second Part: -
Being a happy Ableton user, the only thing missing is modulation in this program.  Bridging Ableton with Pure Data (PD) using Midiox, I’m able to use the pandora’s box of modulations sources which PD is to shift and shake the rhythms in Ableton!

Check it,
Marc Chia
