It’s true – live performance software aside from Ableton Live, does exist. The makers of Melbourne based Audiomulch have been getting their blog on lately, posting news and tutorials about various Audiomulch features, as well as posting a series of video interviews with mash-up artist Girltalk, who discusses some of his workflow and techniques. Developer Ross Bencina also recently published some interesting thoughts about the state of live streaming. Also on the Girl Talk tip – check out some of the luscious screen and projection design for his recent tour (via tour VJ, David Lublin, one of the developers of VDMX.), and download his recent album for free ( interestingly for an album based on the unauthorised use of samples from others, it’s available with a Creative Commons licence.. )
