The fourth London Ableton Link Jam will be taking place between 4-6pm.
This is open to everyone – just turn up, sync up and plug in!
(it's basically a cool, easy and reliable way to sync copies of Ableton Live with a bunch of iOS apps!)
- Please bring your own audio cable to get from your device into the mixer.
- You will need to join the wi-fi network we will create on the day or bring an ethernet cable to plug directly into the router if you prefer.
- Depending on the number of participants we might have to limit the time each person is playing for. Nick and Marcello will be on hand to get you setup and to conduct the proceedings.

Ross will introduce the setup he will be using for his performance, which involves a body-responsive camera system he has developed, using a 3D camera to translate gestures and body movements to control and modulate all sounds in real time.

Ross Flight is a sound and interactive system designer for theatre performance as well as an electronic musician and producer. Ross has also been performing electronic music for over 10 years under a number of different monikers and styles. At Crux, Ross will be performing with a body-responsive camera system he has developed, using a 3D camera to translate gestures and body movements to control and modulate all sounds in real time.
London-based producer, Rico Casazza has shaped a musical identity, fusing many genres that crossover, without having a single genre-specific definition.
He has been releasing music since 2007, and is a little more known in the techno/house field, but has also released downtempo/ambient/dub music, as well as electro-breaks & trip-hop.
His latest project as 'Raw Axe' is more focused on rock/pop collaborations with other musicians.
Vincent has been making music since he was 15, but it wasn't till much later that he discovered the MPC, and since then he's had 3. In his performance setup he will make use of looping pedals, guitars, synths and drum machines – all linked by one MIDI masterpiece; which enables him to create breaks, four-to-the-floor or wherever it might lead him.
With backgrounds in Science, Art and Industrial Design, Lysandre navigates at the intersection of multiple fields. Mentally obsessed at the moment by the interaction between analog synthesisers and computer generated geometry.
