Sunday Synth Jam: Check out this live performance of Grind Out by reader Gil Assayas.
Here’s what Assayas has to say about his multitasking performance:
All the sounds you hear are played live at the same time in one take, without the help of a sequencer, playback or any sort of loop.
An experiment in coordination – all sounds were played live at the same time, no playbacks or loops.
Drums and bass with the left hand using two controllers, leads and pads with the right hand on a Roland Fantom G7.
This main goal of this performance was to challenge myself – sequencers are great but can make us lazy, and this gave me a reason to practise!
He doesn’t mention this, but we suspect that Assayas is actually using his feet to surf the web or post comments on YouTube or something.
Check out this Assayas’ synth jam and let us know what you think of it!
