... I use tools. Turntable? Sp 555? (better than mpc in my opinion) Beatboxing? Live? DVS? Video? breaking a glass? ALL are my TOOLS and I'm only a Free Creative Human... Make music and let "desesperate organization" of our minds... Be water my friends (and check enterely the Bruce Lee interview to undertand how energy waster is this paradigm about "styles") "I don't believe in styles anymore..." (Bruce Lee dixit) ...

taking it one step further....watch the movie: http://www.olgerstar.com/scatch.mov The Scatch by Olger Star (how is that for a surname...) allows you to sample live input and scratch with it. Just plug in the sampler and put a sensor on top of your turntable + vinyl record of choise and go crazy. I've seen really nice demos live and on video, but can not find anything else than this one on the web... I will push Olger to put some of it online next time I see him. Sorry, movie and most info this is in Dutch....

Its exactly the same as how samplers and turntables were used in the 80's to make hip hop but Ableton is better than a sampler. Turntables is a must. If you got this stuff you will be making good music

my opinios is: this has to be the future of turntabelism. some kind of "dj -> musician" evolution...

Bliss: The stickers on the record is a turntablist technique which has existed for a long time. It allows you to drop the needle on the record and then the sticker shunts it into the exact groove you need: http://youtube.com/results?search_query=dmc+dj

Thanks for the link over to the LivePA Blog. I think the purpose of that video is two fold. 1. The world of DJ and Live artist is becoming increasingly blurred. Look at all of the stuff that was featured at this past NAMM. Most of the DJ gear featured midi or reqire or something these days. Who is to say that pure DJ'ing or pure oldschool LivePA is the way to go. A hybrid of each has its place as anything else. 2. Don't try to take the video off as being the one all be all to this technqiue. I dont think the artist, me or CD here are trying to imply that this is how something is done, but rather showing one cool set of tools and collections it could be done. It is to spur thought if anything, and if someone out there is thinking, "Hey I got an MPC that could do that, but I haven't done that before", and they do and do it, then mission accomplished. @ Fatlimey: I think you are inehrently looking at the song structure from a DJ'ing perspective. From a LivePA persepective the sound structure does not have to be so singularly oriented. You don't have to have a song per say that ends and starts with another. The liveset could very well just be a corroboration of evolving sounds being patched in and out throughout the entire set, costnantly morphing rather then perhaps identifying itself.

Fatlimey, not sure what you mean ... couldn't you just set up so that between sets, you just stop all clips and start triggering recording again? Then you would have a big set with all the samples recorded over the course of, say, an evening. Unless I'm misunderstanding your question ... Live definitely lacks easy tools for set management and some of what you might like for sample recording (though you could opt for a plug-in to handle that if you wanted), but it is possible to do most things with a little effort, and I expect this might be an area we'll see improve over time.

[...] Wherein Logickal finally pulls his head out and is pointed to this excellent little collection of sites, LivePA plus blog.  As you may know, live improv is part of my M.O. - so I’m really glad to stumble upon this, thanks to a post over at CDM. [...]

Interesting techniques, records sampling into live looping slots to layer sounds. My one concern is that this must be a destructive operation on the Live set - once you've reached the end of that piece you've got to flush your set and start again. It's great for a one-off performance but not sustainable for an entire DJ set. How to fix this?
