Ableton premiere new film with Pantha du Prince & The Bell Laboratory

Inverted Audio are proud to premiere Ableton’s latest film ‘A New Sequence’ profiling Pantha du Prince and The Bell Laboratory as they prepared to perform Terry Riley‘s “In C” at London’s Barbican Theatre.

Ableton join the musicians at early rehearsals in Oslo and see Hendrik Weber (Pantha du Prince) muse on the origins of his art and his current collaboration with the Norwegian percussion ensemble. As the action shifts to London, the technical challenges of reinterpreting a major work such as “In C” loom ever larger. The film culminates with a triumphant performance at the Barbican Center, where the spirited musical interaction between Pantha du Prince and The Bell Laboratory is enhanced by the psychotropic visuals of The Joshua Light Show.

Ableton were so fascinated by the interplay between Pantha du Prince and The Bell Laboratory’s electronic and acoustic instruments, they made two further films exploring some of the technical and musical aspects of their collaboration.

First, Hendrik shows how he uses Ableton Live and hardware effects to process the instruments from The Bell Laboratory and sequence his own synths and drum machines while on stage. Plus, we learn how Hendrik used cue points in Live to build a playable arrangement of the instruction ­based score of ‘In C’.
