I love electronic music and dancing! I love making music of many varieties, including playing the drums, singing, beatboxing, double bass, using a computer.

I've been using computers to help make music for 15 years, starting with cubase, then logic and finally Ableton live. Right now, there is no alternative for me, Ableton live is the best single program out there for creating, mixing, performance and mastering.

I can help you learn any of these subjects:

* programming beats, melodies, chords, sequences, polyrhythms etc.
* using samplers and synths to come up with completely new and unique sounds
* building a performance setup including midi controllers and the wii remote
* recording vocals
* arrangement
* mixdown and basic mastering

You can listen to my music here. Electronic stuff:

looping for beginners

I'm really into looping. I think it's a great tool to practice with and also a brilliant performance tool. Have a look at my looping performance video here:

I'll present the different types of loopers available and demonstrate them. We'll discuss their strong and weak points.

We'll talk about creating your own dream looping machine, and how to control it.

We'll all have a go at looping and at the end each perform a song that we'll create on our own or with others.

See you then!
