- Cosmos soundscapes, distorted heavens and analog bongo’s (24 Aug 2012)
They say anyone can make music these days, so I decided to join Picnic London’s Ableton Live beginners course. The workshop took place in Goldsmiths’ Orangery. Opinions were divided over whether this place used to be a church, a bunker or a greenhouse filled with citrus trees. Whatever it might have been, it formed an interesting location for a workshop in the midst of New Cross’ hidden gardens, full of windows and ingenious tables that could be transformed into chairs. And of course there was James, the man with many names (Gray Dawn, Strawberry Complexity, Purple James), our Ableton Live instructor for today.
