Jazz and Technology at Ball State University

So happy to play with the Ball State Jazz Ensemble as a guest artist in collaboration with Ableton! The music software company hosted several masterclasses throughout the day and we finished the thing off with big band concert featuring music made using their Push 2 controller. For this concert I built a motorized percussion setup made of recycled materials. Motorized percussion controlled using the push, trumpet and op-1 were accompanied by a piece written by Duke Ellington.
