Yeuda Ben-Atar, aka Side Brain, is a musician, producer, and Ableton Certified Trainer. Yeuda has taught countless students both online and in person. He first caught my attention around 2010 using his Sega Dreamcast arcade stick and other video game controllers to perform with Ableton Live. Yeuda regularly releases Ableton Live Packs and tutorials and holds a weekly "Study Group" where he and participants explore music production in all different styles of music.
Yeuda and I finally got to speak after years of following each other's work. He spoke about his unlikely path to finding himself at the center of controllerism and the LA Beat scene. Throughout the conversation his passion for what he does is undeniable.
