Making Electronic Music with Ableton Live

Did you know that you can make music even if you don’t know how to play an instrument? You can create any type of music you want electronically, from a huge orchestral piece, to a thumping House song, to the music that plays inside your head, you can make it all without ever playing a note! In this week of camp I will teach you how to do this using software called Ableton Live. (Live is used by many famous names in the music industry, eg. Kanye West, Skrillex, JFDR, and many more). You will learn the ins and outs of making electronic music, and by the end of the week you will have made your own song. You will also have a free copy of Live’s Intro version to install on your own computer, so you can keep making music at home! Making electronic music is like dancing and solving a puzzle — you get to groove, but you also get to geek out. So if you love music and figuring out puzzles, join us for this busy and fun week! July 29 – August 2. Instructor: Katie Semro.
