First time trying LaunchKey 25 with Ableton Live

I went to my local library and tried out the Novation LaunchKey 25 they have in their audio booth. I fiddled with it for about an hour, and this video is the best chunk of music making I did during that time. It was a lot of fun!

I was using the Ableton Live set I made in this video: Loopmaking in Ableton

This video includes some text explanations for what I'm doing, but no speaking or singing.

I definitely want to try this some more! Next I think I'll try using my iPad as a midi controller!

How to put on a Fringe show Part 2 - Budget

In this video I talk about the process I went through of planning my musical, My Boyfriend's Girlfriend, which was performed at the Edmonton Fringe Festival 2016. I had never done it before, and I'm hoping some of what I learned will be helpful to other people.

This is part 2, and is about marketing, budgeting, and putting on the show. I include real numbers for how much everything cost and how much I made.

How to put on a Fringe Festival theatre show

In this video I talk about the process I went through of planning my musical, My Boyfriend's Girlfriend, which was performed at the Edmonton Fringe Festival 2016. I had never done it before, and I'm hoping some of what I learned will be helpful to other people.

This one is about writing the script, applying for a main venue, and finding a cast and crew. Marketing and budget stuff will be in a later video.
