As much joy, solace and escape as music brings us, the process of making it is work. Difficult, time-consuming work. That’s why it’s comforting to watch other music makers at work and be reassured that we all go through the same process of finding our voices, mastering our tools and honing our craft.
Putting in the work is the theme of an upcoming Ableton artist movie that portrays Los Angeles-based producer and vocalist Katie Gately and her creative process of sound design and composition. In this presentation, we’ll be showing a preview screening of the movie and then discussing some of the musical, technical and personal topics that it brings up.
