If you’re in Anaheim for the NAMM music trade show, or elsewhere in the LA area, it’ll be worth the trip tonight to downtown LA to catch the fourth annual Wham Bam. Jimmy Edgar and Richard Devine headline music performances that include WE ARE THE WORLD, Thavius Beck, Drumcell, Laura Escudé, DJ Kero, Derek Michael, Eezir, and Professor Nalepa vs It’s Not Over Quebec. CPU, CELL, KERO, and VJ Culture provide visuals and installations.
You’ll also get a healthy dose of tech, as Laura Escude, Thavius Beck, Steve Nalepa, and Moldover talk about live performance techniques and Gareth Williams of Ableton Live shares the latest from iOS touch controller maker Liine. (Gareth tells me he’ll have some never-before-seen stuff there, so if anyone’s there, do check it out.)
Hear and see loads of video and sound samples on the Dubspot blog.
I played the event and led a panel last year; you won’t see me this year as I’m in New York, but enjoy!
