Today on the show is Laura Escudé. She is a fantastic violinist, producer, and Ableton’s first ever official certified trainer. She was hired by Ableton to teach people how to use Ableton Live. She then went on to tour with artists like Kanye West and Herbie Hancock.

Now she teaches people how to do what she did for those shows: program huge arena shows.

We also chat about how she’s making it work with the entire touring industry shut down and what you can do as well. We’ve known each other for a few years, so I loved catching up with her.
