I've seen a lot of Rick Wakeman videos on the YouTubes, but this one is pretty damn fantastic. It's a solo Performance Live At Montreux 2003 while touring with Yes - https://youtu.be/cx5ovZVGcd0. He looks pretty exhausted by the end of this blistering 5 minute plus performance. Fantastic!
Are You Ready to Hear a Copper Heart Played with Dry Ice Fed Through to an Octatrack with Theremin Accompaniment?
Are you ready to hear a copper heart played with dry ice fed through to an Octatrack with Theremin accompaniment? Well here you go.
Video of live concert footage: Concréte Mixer IV Denver - Co2 Copper Heart vs Octatrack vs Theremin with Thomas Lundy and Victoria Lundy. Recorded live at the Concréte Mixer IV concert at the Walnut Room in Denver on January 30th, 2015. I am live sampling the Copper Heart with an Elektron Octatrack and providing drum elements, Victoria Lunday is playing Theremin. The only audio source for Octatrack other than drum samples. Shot with GoPro with audio from Zoom H2n recording ambient room sound.
My last post was a link to the Art + Music + Technology Podcast 047: Brian Crabtree on the Past, Present and Future of Monome.org. In the podcast there was a mention of Daedelus’s use of Monomes in live performance. I dug up this cool video of a Daedelus - set (Live on KEXP) from 2010 which has over 400K hits!
Daedelus performs an improv set live on KEXP. Recorded 2/11/10. Video by Erik Hecht and Patrick Richardson Wright.
The album version of this song is available on:
This song was performed using Tenori-On as a MIDI controller and live sequencer driving racks for synths hosted in Ableton Live. The visuals are generated on-the-fly using live camera input as the only source with real-time visual FX.

I stumbled on to a live video of this cool piece called “Amphis” by Luke Abbott. Enjoy.
Luke Abbott live performance of 'Amphis', filmed at Wysing Arts Centre on 8th March 2014.
'Amphis' features on the forthcoming Luke Abbott album 'Wysing Forest', to be released by Border Community on 23rd June 2014.
I just stumbled on this video “Gary Numan - Are Friends Electric Old Grey Whistle Test 1979” (watch embedded video). The quality is fantastic for a vid from 1979. Lots of Minimoogs :^)

Free Music Friday: "Control Zone" Electronica Track and Video by Mark Mosher Performed on Theremin and AudioCube
One Man, One Theremin, One AudioCube :^) In this video I perform the original instrumental electronic music song "Control Zone" off of my album I HEAR YOUR SIGNALS which you can download name your price (enter $0 for FREE) on
http://markmosher.bandcamp.com/album/i-hear-your-signals. You can of course also buy my songs/albums on iTunes, Amazon MP3, LastFM, ReverbNation, Zune, and as Physical CDs.
This video is in HD and I captured the audio full fidelity right from my sound card so listen with some good headphones or on a good system and select HD for full-screen viewing. The video and audio were captured in one continuous take with no content edits.
To fit the back-story of my album, I set out to compose a song that sounded a bit alien in origin. To liberate myself from my typical compositional instrument of the keyboard, I decided to compose and perform the textures and melodies using only spatial controllers. I this case I used a Moog Etherwave Theremin, and a Percussa AudioCube. Once I got going with this notion I really got using 6 dimension of spatial control to go “Hendrix” with the Theremin. The title of the song has many meanings, one of which should be obvious to Theremin fans.
I'm routing the Theremin analog signal into Ableton Live and then I convert the the signal from pitch-to-MIDI in real-time. This signal is routed to various virtual instruments hosted in Live. I then use a Percussa AudioCube in Sensor mode to add 4 additional dimensions of modulate in real-time. So 6 dimensions of spatial control. I'm changing the signal routing of the Theremin to route MIDI to different virtual instruments on the fly using the Novation Launchpad.
