Ableton Loop 2018

Ableton Loop 2018

LightRiders got to hang out at the The Montalbán for a few nights and soak in the creative convergence that was Ableton Loop 2018. We put up beaded curtains, hung overhead and horizontally, to create a beautiful, flowing light installation floating above the gorgeous rooftop. Attendees got to hang out and take in performances by Richard Devine, hear talks with creators, and vibe out to Dublab DJs all weekend.
