Seven Year-Old Kid Demos The Elektron Analog Four, Covers Depeche Mode

Reader Tubesockor started his son out young, teaching him how to use the Elektron Analog Four.

Now his son is covering Depeche Mode. Here’s what he has to say about the video:

My 7-year old son started to learn my Elekron Analog Four, and actually got pretty good at it. Since he loves “Photographic” by Depeche Mode (and had been playing it on the piano) he taught himself to program it into the A4.

One day I thought I should just capture what he’s doing on video to keep as a memory, and a the same time learn a two-cam setup. This is the result – all filmed in one go. There are English subtitles available in the video as well.
