Ableton AG
Gerhard Behles is the co-founder and CEO of Berlin-based music software and hardware company Ableton AG, makers of Ableton Live and Ableton Push. Live is a leading tool worldwide for music creation with millions of users, and has been instrumental in popularizing computers for live performance. Behles was a founding member of Monolake (with Robert Henke), one of the first musical acts to distribute their work in the form of software in addition to traditional methods, and a pioneering influence in the evolution of various modern electronic musical styles. He studied electro-acoustic music and computer science at Königliches Konservatorium, Den Haag and TU Berlin, and was a software developer and music technology writer as well as producer before leading Ableton for over 15 years.
