Ableton has published a new book of practical tips for starting, developing, and finishing tracks for budding electronic producers.
Interestingly, Making Music, is not an Ableton Live manual – in fact, Ableton isn’t mentioned in the text at all.
The book’s intended purpose is to be an aid for anyone who makes music with computers, using any software or hardware.
The book is divided into three sections – “Problems of beginning”, “Problems of progressing” , and “Problems of finishing”. Each of Making Music’ s 74 chapters examines one of the typical roadblocks that prevents producers from moving forward with a particular piece of music and offers up concrete methods for solving musical problems, making progress, or completing projects.
Making Music – 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Musicians is available for immediate purchase directly from the Ableton website for USD 30 / EUR 25. The ebook and iBook editions will be available from Amazon and the iTunes store in April – pricing for these editions will be announced shortly.
