Live performance featuring Kebu in action with his machines:
This is the second tune I made for my debut album, “To Jupiter and Back”, released in May by Secret Entertainment: http://www.inverse.fi/store/?p=en.levyt.item.html&pid=17004
This video was recorded live at Kulttuuritehdas Korjaamo, Helsinki, 30th of November 2012. Many thanks to Lauri Kujanpää and Pertti Grönholm for working the cameras.
The song was performed using only analog synthesizers, either played live or sequenced. Equipment used in this song: Korg Micro-preset M500, Poly-61, Polysix; Logan String Melody; Touched by Sound DRM1, Roland TR-808, Juno 60, Alpha Juno 1 & 2; Moog Source; Electro Harmonix Small Stone; Yamaha RS7000 (only for MIDI sequencing); Behringer DDX3216, ADA8000; Lexicon MPX500; Steinberg Midex 8 (as midi patchbay).
Unfortunately, the audio recording from the concert failed – it was recorded only in boring mono. But fortunately, I recorded my general rehearsal a few days before the gig, so the main audio you hear is from that.
Cameras: Canon HF100 & HF M406 x 2

Right before Christmas a new and extremely rare electronic music album has hit the shelves.
It is a secret group on Facebook called Electronically Yours that has released an album featuring classic 70′s songs and remixed to fit an electronic audience of the 21st century. And it is not an anonymous bunch of musicians on this album – among the secret members you will find Joakim Montelius (Covenant) under his alter ego Tectonic Knights, Eddie Bengtsson with PAGE, Diskodiktator, compute and Steelberry Clones, to name but a few.
Now you can watch them live – this is Electronically Yours as they made their first performance at ElectriXmas in Malmoe, Sweden on December 15th 2012.
On stage in the video: PAGE, independent state, compute and yours truly Steelberry Clones

We had Moldover “The Godfather of Controllerism” stop by Knocksville while he was on his SuperVillain Fall Tour and asked him to perform for us an exclusive unreleased song. Be on the lookout for his upcoming album it’s going to be unlike any of his past projects. Evolution is a beautiful cycle.
Both the guitar and mic controllers are prototypes I made for my recently completed Super Villain Tour. The microphone attachment is called The Mojito. It’s simply eight arcade buttons built onto a steel clamp that I use to control vocal effects. The guitar is an instrument I’m developing with Visionary Instruments named The RoboCaster (after a well known cyborg/guitar). It’s got every sensor I thought might be cool to have on there including accelerometers, an infrared emitter-detector, and a keyboard mod-wheel. This video highlights how I’ve mapped arcade buttons and a joystick to different intervals on a pitch shifter. Both controllers are tons of fun to play and have forced me to seriously re-approach how I play and sing.
The software I’m using is is Live, Max4Live & [Native Instruments] Guitar Rig. The song Not Your Mirror is from my forthcoming album FourTrack (kickstarter coming soon!). Grady Shon produced the video with help from Ben Shim & KnockSteady crew.

The Fruity Envelope Controller allows you to link any target, plugin or FL Studio, to a range of envelopes that can be triggered from a MIDI keyboard or other controller. Perfect for live performance based automation or those cases where a plugin doesn’t have enough of its own internal controllers.
Arpie is the novel musical composition system. Put balls as many as you like, and watch as they make nice music. Higher balls hit the keys with long pauses, as opposed to lower balls which hit fast and repeatedly. By combining them you can easily make a wide variety of musical sequences.
