    About Me

    Hi, I'm Leonard

    I started out playing the drums, but also produce and DJ now.
    Last year I graduated at LIPA (Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts) in Popular Music & Music Production.

    When I play the drums my main focus lies on rock. I have over 10 years of experience and played together with a lot of people.

    As a producer & DJ I make electronic music (predominantly techno). Not only do I value the technical aspect, but also the creation of arrangements, musicbusiness, getting yourself heard etc.

    Interested in taking a few classes? Don't hesitate to contact me!

    Education

    After producing a few years, I went to LIPA (Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, UK, founded by Sir Paul McCartney). Last year I graduated there in Popular Music & Music Technology.

    Experience / Qualifications

    I released tracks as LEKKE on a couple of labels. I have support from a few big names in my subgenre (industrial/dark techno). I also make sample packs which are supported by the Youtuber All You Need Is Live.

    Private lessons of musical composition - sound production - MAO
    I teach the 3 components of computer music: music computing, composition, and sound processing. The student uses his computer to create instrumental arrangements, and can also practice applied exercises to do at home, as with a classical instrument. The two are complementary therefore recommended! The objective of the courses is the acquisition of two types of skills, in order to make the pupils autonomous. Musical skills: musical training, rhythm, harmony, analysis, and technical skills of computer music: software, recording, sound theory.

    Ableton & MaxMSP Lessons - in a͓̽m͓̽s͓̽t͓̽e͓̽r͓̽d͓̽a͓̽m͓̽
    Ableton Live is a software music sequencer and digital audio workstation. In contrast to many other software sequencers, Live is designed to be an instrument for live performances as well as a tool for composing, recording, arranging, mixing, and mastering. Max, also known as Max/MSP/Jitter, is a visual programming language for music and multimedia. Over its more than thirty-year history, it has been used by composers, performers, software designers, researchers, and artists to create recordings, performances, and installations. Depending on your interest I will show you how to use and customise each program to your needs, but also show you how to combine the two in order to get the best of the 2 worlds. Ableton and MaxMSP are a killer combo for anyone that wants to: - expand their musical instrument with electronic extensions - create custom made controllers for their live performances - create complex automations for live or studio use - produce music, compose, arrange - create automated VJ sets to accompany their live performance - create a live looping performance - control backing tracks for live performances - work on generative music - program art installations and much more I will give you sets & patches with examples to accompany the lessons, but also help you build your own creations in MaxMSP or Ableton.

    DJ class with a professional and passionate
    With 10 years of experience on all DJing media and in different places in French-speaking Switzerland and abroad, it is with great joy that I transmit my knowledge and my passion for music. I am also very active on the Internet, with four sets of mixes, one publication per week. I developed a basic course of about 5 hours, ideal for beginners, to share the knowledge that I myself took 10 years to assimilate as an autodidact. At the end of this training, you will have everything in hand to realize your dream and mix in public. In addition to revealing the secrets that make the difference between good and bad DJ, I will also teach you how to discover music, where to get it and how to organize it. You would save money because I will tell you exactly how to choose your equipment according to your needs and where you get it at the best price. The students are all very satisfied with this course that I gave actively between 2012 and 2015 (see the pictures to read the reviews).

    Live electronics: realizing its real-time environment with Max and Max for Live
    Create your own programming environment for your performance. Max (Cycling 74) is a reference for real-time music programming, dedicated to performance and multimedia installations. The flexibility of the environment makes it possible to create a multitude of interfaces for the computer to communicate with any type of external sensor (gesture, movement, light, ...), in order to create interactive works. The integration into the Ableton Live software, thanks to Max for Live, makes it possible to design effects and personal devices, to then integrate them in a set Live.

    Ableton Live - Getting your ideas down into a workable format to create a full working track! No prior knowledge needed!
    I specialise in making music with the computer when there isn't a whole bunch of theory knowledge there. I can teach you to quickly and efficiently make that tune in your head into a reality, then turn that into a full track. If you have tried a few tutorials or courses and they didn't fit with you because of all the engineering jargon and theory based approach, this course is for you! I learnt to make music because I was hearing all these songs in my head but wasn't good enough at any instrument to materialise them. Ableton allowed me to hash through ideas, jam with them, then finally turn them into a full working track. I have also worked as a live and studio sound engineer so I do have the theoretical knowledge but can communicate in the language of learners from all different levels. I think there are a lot of people that just need to express what they have in there head and Ableton is by far the best program for that. It is very intuitive, "jammable" and so much fun! For me Ableton is my instrument but I also play the drums, piano and bass.
