YMO has a new official homepage on Facebook:
Black Eyed Peas Musical Director Printz Board takes us on a secret tour of his keyboard lair onstage during BEP’s 2010 E.N.D. Tour. He discusses keyboard setup (including a Novation, Moog, Roland Juno-G, and Yamaha Motif), mixer, stereo monitors, bass amp, trumpet, and all of the extra bells and whistles. He’s got a talk-back mic to communicate to Eric Harris during the show, the monitor engineers, or the whole crew in their in-ears. He also has a little TV screen that shows him any angle of the stage, and he can alert whomever necessary about potential problems, so that each cue happens at the right time and the show goes smoothly from song to song.
STATE OF MIND – This is the opening song to Craig Padilla’s February 2000 “Music for the Mind” performance at the historical State Theater in Red Bluff, CA. This benefit concert (for the State Theater and Red Bluff Skate Park) featured Padilla’s vintage analog and digital synthesizers, as well as a cool light show from Morpheus Lighting.
Under the slogan “Join In The Rhythm Of Machines” are two of the largest EBM bands making a total of nine exclusive performances across Europe. In connection with the tour released an ep that is currently being recorded and the tapes promises more surprises during the evening.
In Malmo and Gothenburg veterans may also be joined by a relatively new rising star on EBM heaven, … namely Swedish Auto Da Feh.

Recorded live in Urbana, Illinois on March 7, 2008. This outdoor concert was part of a student-run open house for the College of Engineering at the University of Illinois. Tesla coils were used to create musical pitches via a control system designed by university student Steve Ward. Two coils were used. The right coil is playing a prerecorded Midi track, acting as the bass, and the left one is performed live as a lead sound via the Continuum Fingerboard. In spite of the frigid temperatures (4 degrees Fahrenheit, 26 mph winds), the concert was well attended and was voted the most popular event of the open house.
This is the second part of a prog-rock piece I wrote about the history of Easter Island called “The Island at the Center of the World”. I played the instruments on the backing track except the drums which were played by Mike Novak.
