Even More Music Goodness

Upon revisiting the Monome website i discovered a cracking interview with musician ‘Daedelus’. He uses the two fifty six during his live performances(shown in the video). During the interview (at 2.31) he talks about live electronic music and the way it is often hidden from the audience, what he does is tilt the monome forward so the audience can see the process and follow part of the music creation.

You can see from the crowds reaction that there is a closer connection between the artist and the audience just from being able to see what is going on. In animation, a drawing of an explosion will always look more impressive and powerful when accompanied by a sound, from this we can gather that in music, a drop will be more powerful with some visual accompaniment.

Some more monome madness
