[Video] Machinedrum UW live IDM tweaking

Ah! I found a nice video of someone which made a little how to on making IDM-like beats on the Machinedrum UW through some tweaking. Don't worry, it hasn't got a whole part full of talking before there's any sound. In fact, there's no talking at all due to things being explained through text layered over the video of what he's doing. It does take a little while before there's some cool changes in the sound though.

[Video] ASMO Echo Destruktor (Circuit bent Barbie Karaoke Machine)

Damn, it's been quite a while since my last post as my focus tends to shift around a little and I've been pretty busy with school lately. At the moment I'm spending time in bed feeling not so well. It's getting a bit boring actually so it's a good moment for something new.

A while back I bookmarked a bunch of youtube videos on various pieces of music gear. I'll probably highlight a few of them in here. I'm starting off with a video of a circuit bent barbie karaoke machine, dubbed ASMO Echo Destruktor.

Perhaps not suitable for those which dislike noisy & glitchy gear but I certainly do enjoy some moments. What's also pretty nice is how nicely the item has been rehoused. It has a very tidy design and there surely no sign of the origins.

I've been talking for long enough now, here's the vid.

If you wan't to give it a try too, there's some instructions available here. This particular device was based on these instructions and some other experimentation... according to the maker.

Live @ Kwark Noisefest II, TAC, Eindhoven

Neurotic Envelope @ Kwark Noisefest II, held at TAC in Eindhoven, Holland. Credits for the picture go to Jolieke Jongerden. I might post some more pictures she made of that night, if she agrees.

I also recorded some videos of the shows but I'll have to capture those from tape as I used a different camera this time.
