Get out to your local user group and meet people.

The above video is from the recent Ableton Live Users Group in LA. I used to go to Club Cubase run by Fadi Hayek in NYC quite often. Before I moved to Berlin I was able to go to one of the Ableton User Group meetings in NY. There’s something nice about meeting in person.

Owen Vallis is a producer/composer whose interests have involved him in everything from producing indie bands such as LA’s Rumspringa, building multi-touch interfaces with collaborator Jordan Hochenbaum, and performing live electronic music with artist Jeff Lufkin as the group Speakers. Born in Canada, Owen moved first to San Fransisco where he DJ’d and began composing music, and then later to Nashville where he began to produce. In 2005, Owen moved to Los Angeles to attend Cal-Art’s music tech program for his BFA. – www.learnabletonlive.com
