SORRY, DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, SEAMONSTER LOUNGE IS CLOSED SUNDAY JULY 1ST 2018
Tim Kennedy joins me in the last regularly occurring Electro Lounge. I'll be shifting to a more irregular schedule, announcing dates as they are scheduled. This gives me an opportunity to refine the process and provide a unique experience for the audience when I put together a set.
This is all sampled improv. A process I do at home in my studio to create music. There's nothing quite like sampling the live energy in someone's playing and getting to use them in the future... the immediate future, seconds after it's sampled.
Lightning in a Bottle festival: I'll be performing and managing a stage with Harold Belskus, Katrina Kope, Tyler Kope. If you're around, come say hi!
Sunday the 22nd of April, Harold and Katrina join me at the Seamonster Lounge to do some live song producing on stage. Harold on guitar laying samples for me to loop and manipulate live while Katrina uses her "Sing it Live!" skills to write lyrics and melodies.
The first 3 Sundays of each month Devin Bews hosts a live electronic jam at the Seamonster Lounge from 9pm-12am in Wallingford, Seattle. [MAPS] The session is open to Ableton Live users, instrumentalists and vocalists.
What I do is accompany musicians on drum-set and record the sound feed to Ableton. I either loop or manipulate the audio in real time to provide musical motif's and to fuel the jam. This is just one of many ways to incorporate electronics into a live setting. I encourage you to bring your way of performing electronics live whether you're an instrumentalist, vocalist or producer.
The samples of music continue to be explored in a live setting with guest musicians in an open mic format. A prepared set of music to be sampled and flipped into original tracks while Rob Homan, Evan McPherson, Ryan Venson, and more submit their own musical expression over Bews' flipped beats.
Singers and instrumentalists welcome to sit in. Talk to Devin Bews on the drums.
