Edit: This event happened on June 27th, 2015. See what events are coming up here.

For our 10th INPUT event we’ve lined up something very special – a production masterclass on Live Performance.

Legendary Californian producer Daedelus will grace us with his presence to deliver a 1hr presentation breaking down his live performance techniques, concepts and setup – which consists of Monome controllers and Max/MSP software. He’ll be joined by 4 other expert presenters, all speaking around the theme of live performance production and getting your productions from the studio to stage – check out the other presenters and get tickets ($35) here.

Daedelus is an artist renowned and revered for his consistent output of genre defying music over the last 15 years, releasing on cult labels such as Anticon, Brainfeeder, Ninja Tune, Mush, Emperor Norton and Stones Throw, as well as having notched up collaborations with other huge names including Gaslamp Killer, Om Unit and James Pants.

In this blog post, we’ve collected some amazing things that Daedelus has been up to just in the most recent times so that you too can understand why we are so excited to have him speaking at INPUT – scroll down for TedX presentations, the “Delaydelus” (a customised hardware sampler / delay he’s launching right now) and one of his many Boiler Room sets.

Exhibit A: here’s Daedelus speaking on the TedX stage in Hawaii late last year about performing and concepts around music, as well as demonstrating his controller of choice, the Monome.

Next, check out this project Daedelus has been working on alongside Bleep Labs – together they’ve created the “Delaydelus” – a hybrid sampler and delay unit with some interesting modular patching options – pretty tempting at just US$150! Find out more and preorder one of the first units at the Bleep Labs site.


Finally, here’s a recent Boiler Room set in NYC – take a look at what Daedelus is doing live with his Monome controller and Max / MSP based setup that he’ll  be explaining at INPUT


So if made to the bottom of this post, you probably now understand why we’re so excited to have Daedelus as part of the event! Grab yourself some tickets and learn more about the other presenters here – we look forward to seeing you there.

After INPUT on 27th June, Daedelus will perform a headline set that night at GoodGod Small Club, presented by our good friends Blood & Gold. On our ticketing page you can buy discounted $50 combined tickets for entry to both the workshop & the show later that night.
