November 9th-11th, Ableton will sponsor the Loop summit for music makers with three days of talks, performances and hands-on workshops aimed at sharing ideas on music and creative practice. Among the many musicians, creatives, and technologists in attendance will be Patrice Rushen, chair of USC Thornton’s Popular Music program, and Josh Kun, director of the USC Annenberg School of Communication.
Rushen will host a Listening Session at the legendary East West studios in Hollywood, where attendees can play their music and solicit advice about songwriting and production, and will take part in several panel discussions about the music industry. Kun will present a talk exploring different representations of migrant and refugee experiences in contemporary music.
Ableton produces several popular software platforms for electronic musicians and artists.
