Video: Made in Ableton Live

My step-by-step guide to preparing an electronic music performance, produced for Ableton.

Made in Ableton Live: Ori Moto on how to prepare songs for performance with Live
Directed and Edited by Michael Kirchberger
Produced by Jesse Abayomi
Scripted and Performed by Ray Wassef

‘Made in Live’ is a video series from Ableton. In each episode, an artist is invited to demonstrate how they use Ableton’s audio software, Live, to create and/or perform. For my episode, I spoke to what I feel is a less-often-addressed part of the community: those who want to get started performing live with, well, Live.

This episode brings together my experience as both a musician and an educator. It features a track I originally produced for my live band, The Ray Mann Three, which I reworked for performance as my electronic project, Ori Moto. Beginning at the end, the live performance, I then talk through the process, tools, and ultimately the thinking that leads that end, or beginning – and, hopefully, encouraging others to begin too.
