Deadact.com: Embarassing Electronic Artists Who Fake It



I think I may have just found our Doppelganger site. DeadAct is an online blog geared solely at showcasing electronic LivePA acts who blatantly fake their liveset. Love the idea, name and concept

“DeadAct.com is an online archive of videos found in the public domain that show electronic performers blatantly faking their "live set". To qualify as a Dead Act, the performer must have pre set out their performance in such a way that if they were to drop dead, the set would keep playing on as normal. Bonus points for fake knob tweaking, failed attempts to play real instruments , and good orgasm faces. ....Do they think we're stupid?”

TouchOSC w/ Novation Remote


Making the rounds this afternoon is the amazing implementation of TouchOSC on an iPhone paired up with a Novation Remote SL. TouchOSC takes the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol and puts it into a very slick software application for the iPhone or iPod touch. The result is a Lemur type interface for a fraction of the price. You can download it off the iTunes store now for $3.99.

JayB Productions: Trance Live Studio Performance


Normally as of late I have been a little sick and tired of the studio live performance videos. They are all over Youtube and while they are cool, I have gotten bored of them. Hence they have not really showed up on the blog much (let me know if you would like to see otherwise). This video above however was just way too good to pass up posting however, because of the fact this guy is playing everything live. Good keyboard chops will get me every time.

8-Bit Guerilla


What we see here is 8-bit performer Waxin' Wary from Eugene, Oregon, using Milkytracker to do a live remix of an original tune by Portland, OR's 486 Kid on a handheld PC. To the side one can spot an amp with a deep-cycle battery strapped on the back, which is charged via solar panel before being taken out for a walk in the park.

Beardyman and a pair of KP3s


Here we see champion British beatboxer Beardyman at work demonstrating the live sampling and effects capabilities of the Korg Kaoss Pad 3, paired with a looping pedal. Truly hilarious and amazing.
