Ableton User Group Meeting

10356701_4056171100037_5870914372047517134_nSpecial guest: Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith

This time we will welcome the extraordinary artist Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith from the US. She will show us how she uses Live in her setup for vocal manipulation and mixing her analog synths.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith’s formative years were spent communing with nature on Orcas Island in the northwest region of Washington state, a place she describes as “one of the most magical and peaceful places I have ever been.” Though she wouldn’t begin experimenting with modular synthesis until many years later, her creative work continues to be infused with and inspired by the vitality and serenity of Orcas.

Kaitlyn has made a name for herself as an inventive synthesist and expert sound designer, initially focusing on her voice as her primary instrument. A fateful encounter with a neighbor who lent her a Buchla 100 synthesizer, had a profound effect on her. Mesmerized by the Buchla’s potential, she explains “I got so distracted and enamored with the process of making sounds with it that I abandoned the next Ever Isles album.” Starting with rhythmic patterns and melodic pulses, she soon began sculpting lush and exciting worlds of sound.

Because Kaitlyn is on tour with her new album called EARS we got the chance to invite her to our next meeting. And possibly she will play some songs for us.
