This course is a workshop experience for performing songwriters who are interested in engaging with digital technologies live on stage. Students are provided with the tools to use, create, manipulate, and perform live using their laptops and interface in solo or collaborative settings using Ableton Live. This gives performers the power to curate and create their own live show which accurately reflects their sound and frees them of the dependency of other musicians to accompany them on stage, while allowing the flexibility to integrate other members freely. Each student will put on five performances over the course of the semester, each in a different format, including: solo/hybrid; built live; duo collaboration; with a band, routing click, and audio; and a final performance.
