Last week iComputer was lucky enough to sponsor an event called "Ableton Musical Chairs" which involved every person attending to bring a laptop with Ableton Live installed on it, and headphones. You start at your computer and create for 15 minutes, and when the time is up switch to the next computer. 8 people were in attendance and the end result was excellent! 8 new pieces that were very different, yet progressed in unique ways.
This will help you not only learn to create on the fly, but learn to work with other people and machines outside of your comfort zone. We will have another event next week and looking forward to this being a monthly event!
Try it with even 2 other friends. You'll be surprised at the final products!
Here's the link if you would like to check out the songs that were created:
