Join Daniel Mintseris, keyboard player and programmer for St. Vincent, for a sneak peek of his upcoming course. Daniel provides a quick tour of his onstage setup, showing his keyboard and Ableton Live rig and how he's connected to all the other instrumentalists on stage. Then he dives into Ableton Live itself for a detailed overview of the show file (which he'll show you how to build in the full course). We'll also give you a glimpse of our interview with Daniel, where he provides insights on what it's like to be a musical director and the skills it takes to have a successful career.

We'll reveal the full course at the end of August. Enjoy this sneak peek until then!

Ableton Live


- Hi, I'm Daniel Mintseris, keyboard player and programmer with St. Vincent. I've been working with St. Vincent for about three years and, in that time, we've toured the world and collaborated with David Byrne on a tour called "Love This Giant." In this course called "Performing with Ableton Live: Onstage with St. Vincent," we'll start with my keyboard riser, the hub of all communication on stage and see how the midi controllers work with the Ableton Live system. We'll dive into the software and the details of how to build a file to run your live show.

We'll see how the drum kit can be used as a midi controller to generate drum sounds from Ableton and we'll also look at how program changes are used to change patches on the downstage and guitar stations. Join me as I lift the curtain on putting a show like this together and share with you some of the good practices and creative techniques that I've learned along the way.
