I am just starting my prep work for an electronic live gig at the end of this year.
I want to start fresh with new songs and re-think my workflow. I would love to hear how you approach a live gig, this would help me to build my own way
This impulse came from a great series of video I saw from @cuckoomusic explaining his own approach. These thoughts are really inspiring. Thank you Cuckoo!
Myself, I hesitate between different approaches :
1- Complete improvisation using A4+ Expressive E touché + AR.
i would just prepare sound kits, define a scale and a tempo/time signature per song, prepare performances on the devices.
I would then improvise sequences, arrangement, apply performance FX live.
2- Pre-writen patterns on A4 + AR
Arranging live, applying Fx live, maybe playing keyboard on top of it, or add another box if i feel my brain can handle it!
3- record everything and mix my songs in ableton live.
Extract stems and remix them live using an Octatrack, or Maschine !
And you! Share your way!
