For many years, I performed as a classical musician and found myself struggling with limitations. I knew I had more to offer and had thousands of songs within me but did not have the medium or resources to let them out. Ableton Live was the very tool I had been waiting for. After learning to use this incredibly powerful software, I have been able to make music from my bedroom, an airplane, or a studio. I have been able to translate my music into a dynamic live performance. I can be a one woman band, a composer, a singer/songwriter, or an engineer. With Live, there are no limitations.
