Feeling yourself in a songwriting rut? Why not crack open a copy of Ableton Live? That's how John Barthmus, former lead singer for Philly's A-Sides, transformed from a guitar-slinging front man to a laptop-toting front man. It's also how his new band, Sun Airway, was birthed. And now look at them, all playing at the 2011 Pitchfork Music Festival and whatnot — so proud.
We spoke with Barthmus at the festival, and asked about his experience getting familiar with Ableton and what recording tricks he's learned that will find their way onto the next Sun Airways recording. He also details his band's crazy, wireless video projection system. Next time we'll ask for a diagram.
