In our most recent meet up as part of the Central Victorian Ableton User Group we were joined by Ableton Certified Trainer, Music Producer and Live Electronic Musician Ben Ang who zoomed us from Singapore!
Ben used a bunch of the new features and instruments in Live 11 to create a remix track (the production side) and also took us though preparing it for live improvisation (the performance side). If you want to get a solid sense of how Live 11 might fit into your own work, this is a really good starting point.
Ben Ang is an electronic music production instructor, principal tutor at the Electronic Music Lab (EML) in Singapore and one half of synthpop-remix duo Cosmic Armchair. He teaches electronic music production and performance with Ableton Live, Ableton Push and Max for Live.
With over 20 years experience in teaching and performing electronic music, Singapore-based Ben Ang specializes in electronic music production in Ableton Live (basic and advanced), performance on Ableton Live and Launchpads, and customized artist consultation sessions.

As principal tutor at the National University of Singapore Electronic Music Lab, he has helped thousands of students on their electronic music journeys and enabled many to go on to release their own music and launch professional music careers in Singapore and beyond.
