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!

Last Friday was such a great day! I not only released my album Fear Cannot Save Us, but Darwin Grosse stopped by to interview me for his podcast Art + Music + Technology. I’m such a huge fan of the podcast so it was an incredible honor to be interviewed.

Checkout the episode here http://artmusictech.libsyn.com/podcast-023-mark-mosher where I offer behind-the-scenes details on the creation of the album.

See all the episodes so far here http://artmusictech.libsyn.com/. You can also Subscribe to Darwin’s podcast  in iTunes.

A quick update on the album. While Bandcamp is a great place to get the album (best value + you get a 10 page digital booklet), I’ve also made it available on iTunes, Amazon, and CDBaby. It’s also on most other services – just search for “Mark Mosher”.

If your enjoying the album and want to recommend it to your friends, I’ve setup an easy to remember URL which points to bandcamp – www.FearCannotSaveUs.com.

Thanks again to all those who bought the album so far!

Synth Performance Video: Behind-The-Scenes "Dark Signals" Soundcheck from 8/23/2013 Concert at Dairy Center for the Performing Arts

dark-signals-soundcheck-watt2

Here is a behind-the-scenes video from my August 23rd show at the Dairy Center for the Performing Arts in Boulder Colorado.

The video was shot at my sound check by fellow performer and Electric Trombone player Darren Kramer using GoPro. The audio is from GoPro camera.

At this show I’m using Abeton Live to do for live sequenced playback. For live play, For this song called “Dark Signals” (from my second album I HEAR YOUR SIGNALS)  I’m using a my Remote SL MKII  Keyboard along with Maschine (custom template in made with Control Editor) to play instruments in Live racks. As you'll see in the video I'm using pressure from the pads to modulate this synths.

AudioCubes are receiving light commands via MIDI CCs from Ableton Live. I never use on-board sounds in Tenori-On and instead use it as a controller and pump MIDI into synths hosted in Ableton Live.

The visuals are based on live camera input processed in Resolume. The Resolume system receives controller and automation from the Ableton rig via MIDI. I’m using the house projector to display my visuals on a screen that’s the width the of the stage!

It’s a little hard to tell from this video because audio is from GoPro, but the sound at this show was amazing thanks to Gannon Kashiwa who owns and operates GK:SOUND at the TARDIS in Denver. I’m working on a 3 camera edit from footage from the actually show performance which will have audio from the board – so stay tuned.

Enjoy,
