Hi, I’ve been using Ableton live to arrange short sound tracks I make, using field recordings and playing piano and guitar. I start out sketching ideas using guitar pedals and microGranny.
Some examples of my work
Using a keyboard and mouse feels un-natural and unsatisfying; since most of the arranging has been done in software. I want to change the way I make music, or at least change my perspective. I have been looking to buy a new piece of equipment for a while now, but I’ve been hesitant to purchase as I’ve really questioned if I really needed something new.
I want to focus on
State of flow
A new perspective
Minimal step up
I love working with limitations, thats why I’m not sure If I even need a new device.
I’m interested in exploring the connection we have with everyday sounds and our memories, and creating something musical with that. I want to be able to combine the instruments I play into a track, as well as capturing sounds and playing them expressively, like an instrument.
A few devices that I find interesting
Landscape Stereo Field
From your experience what devices would you recommend, or something else entirely?
