New Video by Request!

Currently I’ve released two videos on my website, Vimeo and YouTube....The first single “Heavy Metal Paperclip” and “What is an Electric Trombone DJ?”. The latter is a descriptive account of what hardware and software I’m using for my solo live looping project “Beyond The Boneyard”. I’ve had several inquiries over the past two weeks about the name of the song which accompanies the flow chart text in the video, and if a full-screen version of the small video embedded is available.

Yes! The song is called “Lemur Femur” and is a single scheduled for release in April, but I’m happily adding the video to the website today. Enjoy!



Incidentally, in coming weeks I will be uploading a few more videos that feature the JazzMutant Lemur hardware multitouch controller as I used in this video. I relied on this magical device heavily from 2009-2011 to control Ableton Live on my MacBook Pro. However, due to the popularity, versatility, size and affordable cost of the Apple iPad, JazzMutant went out of business on Dec 31, 2010. A sad day indeed as this company and its touchscreen technology were clearly years ahead of their time, as the Lemur was quickly adopted by innovative electronic musicians around the world, most notably Bjork. Thankfully, several of the incredible developers have converted the technology into the amazing “Lemur App” which launched on the App Store Dec 7, 2012 for a remarkably low price of $50! ($25 for hardware owners). All my hardware templates were easily imported, and all objects, devices, manual and Lemur Daemon function exactly as before...all on the tiny 6”x9” razor thin iPad2!
Thank you JazzMutant for your innovation and a special thank you to all the software developers who made this new app available...and affordable...for all!
