Ableton announce Loop ’16 lineup
Loop was launched by Ableton in 2015 as a platform for music makers to meet, be inspired and learn from each other, this year’s edition will bring together around 900 attendees at Berlin’s historic Funkhaus venue, taking place over three days and nights from 4-6 November.
Loop will cover topics such as the studio as an instrument, the art of sampling, motion technology in music, computer listening and composition, new directions in music education, field recording and much more. The workshops and studio sessions will afford smaller groups of attendees the chance to interact with leading technologists, musicians and creators and provide up-close exposure to their creative practices.
