Sasha is in Live Control with Ableton
RA announced Sasha new US residencies late last year and with this came the expected amount of excitement from USA fans considering this was his first residency in America since the Twilo days with John Digweed. However, things were going to be slightly different this time around. Sasha had a new toy, a new instrument, a new piece of technology with which to wield his magic and those stateside punters were going to hear it live for the first time. Described as a prototype wave file controller this sexy piece of kit (seen on the right) is something he created to maximize interaction with the breakthrough software program, Ableton Live. An idea for nearly 12 months, it is now reality.
Allowing for sound manipulation, it ads a unique live element to Sasha's sets and intrigued by the concept RA's Los Angeles correspondent, Dariography caught up with Sasha to get a true in-depth understanding of 'The Controller'.
