Get a sneak peak at our upcoming course with Daniel Mintseris, keyboard player and programmer for St. Vincent, as he shows his onstage setup, and shares tips for working with Ableton Live and insights from his career.
- 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.
We'll reveal the full course at the end of August. Enjoy this sneak peek until then!
