Another audio expert has agreed to speak at the Macworld on Sound conference being held in London next week.
Martin Delaney AKA Mindlobster, who has been performing on stage with Apple laptops since 2001, will be showing how to create live music using Macs. He will demonstrate how to use VJ and music apps simultaneously, on one or two computers, from setting up to the potential pitfalls, and required hardware.
He will also use Ableton Live to create loops and rhythms from ambient and environmental sounds, and combine them with 'traditional' instrument sounds. The demonstration will include a live performance.
Delaney is technical director of Public Loop, a group that uses laptops to teach music and video jamming to prisoners and community groups.
Macworld on Sound will take place in London on June 24 and will offer tips and techniques for making music on the Mac. Other speakers include Sound on Sound editor-in-chief Paul White, musician and recording engineer/producer, and Macworld contributing editor Mike Collins, and musician Paul Farrer.
The event is being run in conjunction with Sound on Sound magazine. It will run from 10am-4pm at Lock 17 (formerly Dingwalls), 11 East Yard, Camden Lock, London, NW1 8AF.
The event costs £69.99 ex VAT and all attendees will get a copy of either A Professional Guide to Audio Plug-ins and Virtual Instruments, or Choosing and Using Audio and Music Software, both by Mike Collins. Book your place here.
