A Music Geek Holy Shit Moment

I’ve always been interested in the intersection between pure music and pure technology – perhaps this explains my music game fixation, or the mashup addiction.

So when I saw a picture of Kid Beyond giving a demo of Ableton Live at NAMM, I had to ask my former roommate and resident DJ expert Dave Cross (not the comedian!) what he knew about it. He had, after all, been telling me how much he loved Live not a few days beforehand.

Timely as ever, he linked me to a video of the same sort of demo, also given by Kid Beyond. It is fucking unreal. It’s turned me into some sort of stuttering fool who can only say things like “The beatbox…loops…foot pedal…holy SHIT”.

If you’re any sort of geek who’s into music technology, you MUST see this.
