About The Event

The Live PA Institute Day was created to empower artists across the Chicago electronic music scene with a space to strengthen musical production skills, explore new projects, and to expand the collective platform. Participants will engage with each other’s organizations, labels, and artistry. This experience will serve as an incubator for community building among peers, sharing process, technique, love and encouragement.

Live PA is the act of performing live electronic music utilizing drum machines, samplers and sequencers. It has an important improvisational component that is similar to the experience of Jazz improvisation, where music is composed spontaneously based on themes, motifs and patterns. The machines are the instruments of choice.

Lional “Brother El” Freeman, the founder of the Live PA Institute Day, is a spontaneous music composer, multidisciplinary creative, and educator who uses music and visual arts to express ideas while connecting people to a higher plane of consciousness. Formally trained as an Audio Engineer and Graphic Designer, he has acquired many different skills running The Beat Bank, an independent record label. Brother El is committed to providing other artists with accessible experiences to deepen their knowledge of genre and technique.

Interactive workshops:  11 am to 5 pm

Live Public Performances:  7 pm

Special thanks to our partners UChicago Arts and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) for supporting the 2nd annual Live PA Institute Day. For more information, visit or contact email, or call 312-834-4328.
