Songwriting Bootcamp Pt.1! For week 15 we started working really hard on completing our first song. Since it was a special occasion we brought an official Ableton Featured Artist called Angélica Negrón who is a composer/performer that uses Live in her music and with her bands (Balún and Arturo en el Barco). She taught us about melodies and the many different things you could with them and she even brought her violin to play the melodies that we wrote. So we started with one original melody that we wrote together and from that we started making, on Live 8, variations which are different versions of the same melody. These variations are useful because they help us create material for our songs. And these melodies are the first step into completing our first song. Next week is Songwriting Bootcamp Pt. 2 and we’ll move even forward!
