About Erin Barra and Ableton – Using Ableton Live to manipulate multiple control surfaces in conjunction with a vintage Wurlitzer and Hohner Melodica. Erin Barra has taken the words singer/songwriter and administered some aurally and mind-altering treatments. Posted up on the constantly changing intersection of analog and digital, this fresh approach to live music starts on the stage and immediately takes you along for a ride on a fantastic voyage from the recording studio to the DJ booth and back again.
This novel reinterpretation of her material allows you to watch her produce, perform and arrange tracks LIVE: a groundbreaking approach to what people are referring to a Live Remix.

Erin Barra will be on tour through Feb with stops in the Rocky Mountains, California, WMC in Miami and SXSW.
