I am a professional instrumentalist and composer (=13 years university education).
I have improvised a lot in groups, but I would love to alone perform/improvise, and I see a great potential in Live to make a multi-instrumental one-man performance.
I don't use Push one-finger drum-loops or so: just imagine acoustic improvisations layered on top each other, fuelled with some effects. Push is OK to use as a live instrument.
I would play/record one instrument over mic or line or MIDI (Push), than replay it, move to another instrument and add to it, and so on creating a massive musical experience, and yet be able to fully control it. Completely free of pulse and the measure frames. Similar to contemporary free jazz, but a bit different...
Simply said, no pre-recorded sounds and no beats, but all music is done on fly freely.
Now, how to go further.
- What hardware do I need to achieve that? I guess more or less pedal switches for controlling Live. Which & how?
- What kind of Live-setup, I guess Session?
- Any YT tutorials?
- Your experiences?
- Books, sites, people...?
- How to learn? Lessons? Anyone doing that extensively?
