Iftah Gabbai is half of "skinnerbox", the Berlin based live act, which has earned its international name due to its infamously unpredictable improvised shows and its critically acclaimed studio releases. Skinnerbox are also the makers of the "sbx 2049", a virtual drum machine software, officially released by Ableton in June 2010, 19:00 and they are the first artists to release their self made - branded Ableton live instrument.
In the coming workshop Iftah will present his custom made live set-up which consists of two Monomes, a dedicated Arduino based d.i.y controller and a custom written Max for live software. He will talk and demonstrate performative aspects of improvisation within such a controller based custom environment for both live and studio usage.
