This month’s Ableton User Group will be hosted by Takuma Matsui + special guests.
The official NYC Ableton User Group is where passionate independent musicians and producers are ready to share their knowledge and experience.
Host: Takuma Matsui is an Artist and Music Technologist based in Brooklyn, NY. His work explores form-mediums at the intersection of new tools and aesthetics, incorporating Max/MSP, 2D animation, and new modes of digital communication. He is a pro instructor at Splice and a video content creator for iZotope.
Instructor: Jan Esbra is a New York City-based Colombian guitarist and composer known for his “mesmerizing soundscapes and innovative ideas.” His debut solo album, entitled “Temporary Objects” was released on August 27, 2021, and is a collection of improvisations using guitars, samplers, and various effects pedals. His sophomore release, “Confluence,” is a collaborative project with St. Louis-based musician, producer, and visual artist Greg Dallas and will be released on November 17, 2022, via The Slow Music Movement. Jan combines elements from minimalism, ambient, and improvised music to create evolving sound sculptures. His Instagram is @jan.esbra, and his website is janesbra.com.
As always, the meetup is open to producers, songwriters, DJs, and musicians of all types and proficiency levels looking to exchange ideas, network, meet like-minded producers, and learn new tips and tricks from our presenters and fellow participants.
During the event, you will also have the opportunity to see the 343 Labs facilities, meet some instructors, and learn about courses.
