“The show revolves around Ableton Live software on custom made super-computers, which we remotely access and control with Behringer BCR2000 midi controllers.”

“Next to the ethernet remote computer screens there are four Minimoog Voyagers, the classic analog synthesizers. They’re a 30-year old design.”

“We can mix, shuffle, trigger loops, filter, distort samples, EQ in and out, transpose or destroy and deconstruct synth lines. We keep some surprises on the side too!”

“There’s a direct connection between our rig and the lights and visuals of the show. The light and video engineers can also add or control layers during the show.”

“Inside the pyramid are synthesizers and remote controls connected to the rest of the music equipment and computers, which are in rack-mounted towers off stage.”

“Working the music equipment, lighting and video equipment, and building the pyramid for each show takes around 10 people, including both of us.”

    1. Though I’m not sure that I like the music offered, that is some cool setup.

      I’m not dying without being in one of those concerts.


    5. Everyone likes daft punk? Everyone likes Daft Punk. Seriously though, seeing setups like that makes me glad i stuck to guitar and i didn’t pursue techno as my musical artistry. Can you imagine syncing all that machinery up?
