System Technology and Design 
for Digital Improvisation; 
UNA Live Case Study
EDM or Electronic Dance Music has evolved into a vibrant, dynamic, real-time music format that can present several challenges for both performers and sound engineers at live events. Combining EDM with a live band compounds the technical requirements for stage monitoring and front-of-house exponentially.
The moderator for this presentation will be Greg Riggs. The presenters will be Richard Larsen and Scott Eric Olivier, who are members of EDM group UNA Music, and seasoned audio professionals with diverse backgrounds across music composition, music performance, recording, programming, concert sound and IT infrastructure for music production. Richard and Scott will provide a detailed case study explaining the “live improvisation” aspects of EDM, challenges with traditional on-stage monitoring and sound reinforcement systems and discuss the MADI-based, high-resolution digital audio network they designed to meet UNA Music’s live requirements for controlling multiple computer-based music sources,
integrating live instruments, stage monitoring, and providing FOH with impeccably clean individual input channels and stereo stems.
