Flying Robot Rockstars

April 28, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

KMel Robotics presents a team of flying robots that have taken up new instruments to play some fresh songs. The hexrotors create music in ways never seen before, like playing a custom single string guitar hooked up to an electric guitar amp. Drums are hit using a deconstructed piano action. And there are bells. Lots of bells.

Many thanks to Lockheed Martin and Intel Corporation for their support.

See this show and more live at the USA Science & Engineering Festival on April 26 & 27 in Washington, D.C.

Jodorowsky’s Dune (2014)

April 28, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

In 1973, film producer Arthur P. Jacobs optioned the film rights to Dune but died before a film could be developed. The option was then taken over two years later by director Alejandro Jodorowsky, who proceeded to approach, among others, Peter Gabriel, the prog rock groups Pink Floyd and Magma for some of the music, artists H. R. Giger and Jean Giraud for set and character design, Dan O’Bannon for special effects, and Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles, Gloria Swanson and others for the cast.

Frank Herbert traveled to Europe in 1976 to find that $2 million of the $9.5 million budget had already been spent in pre-production, and that Jodorowsky’s script would result in a 14-hour movie (“It was the size of a phonebook”, Herbert later recalled). Jodorowsky took creative liberties with the source material, but Herbert said that he and Jodorowsky had an amicable relationship. The project ultimately stalled for financial reasons. The film rights lapsed until 1982, when they were purchased by Italian filmmaker Dino DeLaurentiis, who eventually released the 1984 film Dune, directed by David Lynch.

More “Space Exploration” :)

Retro electronic Sci-Fi improv………

All sounds straight out of the instrument- no external processing.

The little volume jumps are caused by the 266 QRV affecting a one of the 227 channel inputs.

Kebu – Just Another Space Odyssey (Live @ Assembly 2013)

October 6, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Kebu live at the Assembly Computer Festival at Hartwall Arena, Helsinki, 2.8.2013. Real-time computer graphics by VJ Julius Tuomisto and his Z Vector software. Many many thanks to the amazing crew at Assembly for not only arranging the concert but also filming and broadcasting the show (the whole show was streamed online in realtime)!

The song was performed using only analog synthesizers, either played live or sequenced. The performance was recorded directly from the mixer to a stereo track and later mixed together with the ambience from the arena. A few mistakes have been cut out and replaced with the audio from a rehearsal take.

Equipment used in this song: Roland JX8P, Juno 60, Alpha Juno 1&2, TR-808; Moog Source, Korg Polysix, Poly 61; Jomox AirBase99, Touched-by-sound DRM1, Oberheim Matrix 1000, Yamaha RS7000 (only for MIDI sequencing), Behringer DDX3216, Lexicon MPX500, as well as a midi patchbay and additional preamps for my mixer.

Eowave Launches Spatiolab Capsule TITAN

September 28, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

capsuletitan

Eowave crew is proud to announce the release of the Spatiolab Capsule TITAN, also available in individual modules. Because Titan has a thick atmosphere able to carry sound waves, the moon is a noisy place…
For a long time, we’ve imagined the music of the space to be a sweet song of gods, crystalline magical sounds. And we thought that the space was a silent place, cold and empty. Since 2004, the Cassini-Huygens mission has recorded some sounds of the space, different from everything we’d imagined before, shock of particles launched in the space at a prodigious speed, a deep chaos, unexpected, which the ESA/NASA has sometimes called « alien sounds »… The Cassini-Huygens mission started the exploration of Titan in 2007.

Since 2000, Eowave designs instruments for electronic music. The Titan Capsule is a fascinating and immersive experimentation mixing space mysteries and music. It will make you explore sound dimensions that are still unknown.

Titan has a very thick atmosphere able to carry sound waves. With the Capsule TITAN, we’ll get onboard to explore how the sound goes across Titan orange thick atmosphere. In a way, the Capsule Titan is a simulation station able to reproduce the journey of the sound waves crossing Titan’s atmosphere and offer the possibility to modulate parameters like the thickness of the haze, the ionisation of the magnetosphere, Titan’s magnetic glow, or low frequency zones.
Price : 699 euros incl VAT / 549 euros (without case, no MIDI interface, no patch cables, no PSU).
