As a multi-instrumentalist, producer, emcee, and electronic music educator, Thavius Beck is a man whose life revolves around music and technology. With a focus on bass-heavy rhythms, dark, emotional melodies, and twisted sample manipulation, he has released numerous albums of his own (both as Thavius Beck and under his previous moniker, Adlib) and collaborated with or remixed artists such as Saul Williams, Nine Inch Nails, the Mars Volta, Skylar Grey, and Nas, just to name a few. His ability to both perform and produce has earned him much recognition in the electronic music community.
His love of music and technology led him to Ableton Live, and in 2009 he became a certified Ableton trainer. He began running free electronic music workshops in downtown L.A. that were open to people of all ages, and soon helped develop course curriculum for an electronic music school called Dubspot. Through his many online tutorials, he quickly became one of the most recognizable faces and voices worldwide for Ableton Live education.
In 2016, Beck left L.A. and moved to Brooklyn, New York. In addition to being an assistant professor at Berklee, he is available for private instruction in New York City or online.
