The video was recorded at last November’s inaugural Loop summit.

Ableton has offered an insight into what went down at its recent Loop conference in Berlin, with a recording of Holly Herndon’s lecture on her musical process.

In the lecture she discusses her academic studies and they have informed her albums for RVNG and 4AD, covering her interest in surveillance and collaboration with Mat Dryhurst.

Following the lecture she had a conversation with Jace Clayton aka DJ /rupture, who questioned Herndon on everything from artistry as activism to autotune.

Loop was held in Berlin in November, and saw artists including Matthew Herbert, James Holden and Robert Henke all share their experience and expertise across a three-day period ahead of the launch of Ableton’s most recent products: Link and its new Push controller.

Holly Herndon’s lecture is the first artist video to be made available from Loop, but Ableton will be making more available in the coming months.
