Ableton has once again created something innovative and boundary-pushing with their Push instrument. Push gives the user the ability to step away from the sometimes boring and uninspiring setting that is the computer, keyboard and mouse, and produce music entirely on Push. This open up a new world of innovative and intuitive thinking in regards to making music, which is probably why Push has been defined as an instruments itself.
Strøm has flown in Ableton Certified Trainer, DJ and producer Jesse Abayomi to teach you all about Push and the integration with Ableton Live 9, so you are sure to get it right the first time. After Jessie’s demonstration of music making with Push and Live 9, Jesse and Ras Kjærbo will direct and support a class on music making with said tools, so that you can make a tune yourself on Push. There will be 16 workstations in total, eight Push’es and eight MIDI keyboards. During the class, participants will switch between these stations, so most people get to work on Push. At the end of the day, you can submit your creation to win a free version of Live 9 Suite (judged by Ableton and Strøm - submission has to be in person at the event).
N.B. sign up for the 16 spots is required, but anyone with a laptop with a working version of Ableton Live 9 Suite (which you can a full 30-day trial version of here) can attend.

When & Where
Strøm was established in 2007, and is held at various venues around Copenhagen (indoors and outdoors) celebrating all aspects and genres of electronic music. The festival runs for seven days, and featured 61 events held at 21 venues with 171 artists last year.
Strøm is considered the premier electronic music event in Scandinavia, featuring a wide selection of events held all over Copenhagen. Strøm is more than just a party. Strøm is a festival that can and will do more than just present a band on stage. The musical profile is focused on quality above quantity, and the festival draws an audience of both young and old, families with children, hardcore ravers and nerdy crate diggers.
The Strøm festival week is divided into three main categories of 1) workshops, master classes and artist talks, 2) concerts, raves and events, and 3) outdoors concerts in Enghaveparken – one of the nicest parks in central Copenhagen. Strøm presents the newest and most iconic electronic music of both local and international origin. Strøm is a festival with great international appeal and attention, and is also an extraordinary snap- shot of the trends and tendencies that currently define the electronic music culture in Denmark and abroad.
Strøm’s vision is through activities, sparring and networks to support, strengthen and unite the Danish electronic music scene. With a focus on quality, Strøm means to spread awareness of electronic music as well as positioning Copenhagen regionally, nationally and internationally as home to a significant and leading electronic music culture.
