  1. BlueBrat – I was wondering about that.

    I’m thinking that he either wedges it between keys to create sustained notes, or that the synth’s so old that he’s worried he’ll have to retune it on the fly.

  2. In an interview (more than one if I remember right) he mentions he sometimes has to fix things on the synths as he’s playing live, esp. the moogs. The equipment is just old and fails a lot, but he still uses it on the road anyway.

  3. That’s fantastic – I love that he’s living a bit dangerously.

    Have you seen his live in your living room video? He is all over his gear when he plays, using it in interesting ways to shape his sounds.

  4. Just to make it clear, these pics are from 3 different events; the synth porn pics are from his 2008 indoor European tour, the exterior fireworks & projection shots are from his 2005 Polish concert, and the remaining ones are from Beijing 2004.
