At the September Meet Up of Central Victoria Ableton User Group we heard from composer, sound artist, musician and academic Anthony Lyons.
Anthony has written works for orchestra, bands, electronic performance, installation, planetarium domes and while he draws inspiration from both popular and art music traditions, Electronic and sampled elements are a feature of many of his compositions.
In this session Anthony took the group through integrating various external hardware synths and devices with Ableton. Troubleshooting scenarios with sending midi to and from Hardware to DAW and took us into his creative process and sound design.
His mini-dive into this huge area of music making spawned a lot of great discussion and questions and certainly caused a few members to seek out a bunch of new equipment on the back of this session.
