Videos from The Chemical Brothers Live Show 2011

I was surfing around and found some of these videos shot by fans at shows for the current Chemical Brothers tour. The lighting and visual effects are pretty fantastic.

This first three clips are via thorstendiel. First is “Galvanize” in Esch-sur-Alzette (Luxemburg) 13.01.11. It doesn’t get going till around 2:20.

Next is “Do it Again”.

Next “Hey Boy Hey Girl”.

Here is another video of “Hey Boy Hey Girl” from Mexico this time shot from higher up and from the right by salinasayala. This angle gives you a real sense of the depth used for the visual effects.

"Enumerating" - One Patch Performance Video Series


Watch embedded video

“Enumerating’ is another installment in my “ONE PATCH PERFORMANCE SERIES.” Videos in this series are intended to show what's possible when you constrain your tool set to one synth and one preset with many modulation routings mapped for performance.

I created a 4 bar pattern with a MIDI clip in Ableton Live. The clip sends notes to SonicCharge Synplant. All modulation is performed in real-time with two Percussa AudioCubes in “Sensor” mode.

The cubes are sending MIDI data to Ableton Live via the Percussa MIDI Bridge app through MIDI Yoke virtual ports. I used MIDI mapping in Ableton Live to map the  continuous controller data being sent from each cube face to device parameters within Synplant and also to the Ableton Transpose MIDI device.

For example, one cube face cause the branches of Synplant to spin. Branch length changes timbre. By rotating the branches I'm changing modulate per note as I rotate the branches.

Probably one of the best things about AudioCubes is that you can modulate 4 parameters at the same time with one cube in a way that isn’t possible with knobs on a controller. When used with a synth like Synplant, the changes in timbre can be quite radical. This video also illustrates how sensitive the cubes are. As you can see, I'm using finger movement to control modulation. I also have the cubes set to give visual feedback. As my hand or finger gets closer to the cube the color intensifies. I have different colors mapped to each cube face.
