Nick Feldman

Ableton Live expert and catalyst for hire

Intro

My professional and personal work in the audio, video, print and event industries stretches across two decades and therefore I consider myself a versatile fellow who can offer many things which can’t be summed up in a single catchy sentence – so please check out the menu links for more details of what I do.
My main focus at the moment is providing music and video tech tuition – primarily using Ableton Live and Resolume Avenue – but I’m also available for live shows, content creation, problem solving and any interesting/crazy professional projects which may just require one special guy who can do the work of ten men.

Tuition

In addition to my regular teaching positions at Point Blank Music School and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama I can provide bespoke modular one-to-one tuition in my modest home studio or remotely at your studio/workplace/home.
For audio, I am able to teach all aspects of music production, sound design or live performance (including audio-visual work) and I focus on using the Ableton Live software for my tuition. If you are interested in live video/VJing I also teach Resolume Avenue.
I have devised a series of modules covering all aspects of using these apps, from the very basics through to advanced setups. This modular approach gives you great flexibility to choose exactly what and how you learn. Email me to enquire about rates.
I work with both Mac and PC platforms and provide a friendly yet professional service. I’m based in north-east London, have public liability insurance and am CRB checked. I have been teaching since 2012 and hold a Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training.

Live shows

I have created many custom audio-only or audio-visual setups using Ableton Live at the core but which can also bring in VJ/media-server software such as Resolume Avenue or VDMX.
This has been for my own stage-shows or other stage design, theatre or art installation commissions. I am used to working on a shoestring budget but am keen to embrace larger projects as well.
For the final touch I create a touch-screen control panel to run the whole show via the Lemur software, now available for the iPad. I have worked on solo shows, group/band projects and surround sound setups.
Please get in touch if you have a creative live show that you need my help to realise or if you wish to bring me in as a consultant on an existing project – my head bristles with ideas that need to get out!

Sound design

I have a wide-ranging background as an electronic musician who has dipped his toes in many a genre and also created custom sound design for theatrical and circus performances.
Please contact me with regards to any projects which you might require sound design for – whether this be film, TV, animation, online, sample libraries or gallery installations.

Contact

Please drop me an email to discuss tuition availability and rates or to propose any other kind of project.
