Bernd Kistenmacher – Celestial Movments

2 comments

A lot of the video and content that we post on here falls into the realm of what I would call “traditional” livePA, that is dance music being performance in a rave or club setting. Personally I am more more interested in alternative forms of live performance. It doesn’t necessarily have to be esoteric or new agey, but something that is just not the same. The video above I think is a nice illustration of that concept. Nothing complex is going on here visually, but performance is still wonderful to listen to.

Ableton Live Controlled with Xbox 360 Controller

2 comments

We have seen our fair share of Wii controllers, taking on software for live performance. I have not however, seen something directly controlling Ableton nor have I previously seen an Xbox 360 controller doing it. The video is a little grainy, but is a nice demonstration.  Unfortunately, I don’t see any  explanation of how it is actually done.

Simply a tremendous demonstration of what a modular can do in the right hands.

Arduino Didgeridoo

Not really a LivePA video, but this is a fantastic video of a didgeridoo modified with an arduino chipset. Incredible how cool drone sounds can be.

Yamaha Announces Tenori-On Orange

1 comments



Been a while since our last post. I can't say that will never happen again, but lets hope I can keep on top of things going forward.

Yamaha has announced a new more affordable version of their Tenori-On performance product. The Tenori-On Orange features the same basic soundset and touch array as the original Tenori-On, but comes in a plastic shell (compared to Magnesium) without an LCD screen. It is expected to start shipping in December for a street price around $1,000.
