Sunday Synth Jam: DJ Rat Face does a live performance of Forget, which is done entirely on the Akai Miniak synthesizer.
This video is a introduction to the Tron Beatjazz Controller system by Onyx Ashanti.
Ashanti is on a ‘quest to create the most amazing live performance instrument EVER! A Revolution in the way of making music!’
He wants to leave boring laptop DJ performances behind:
Ashanti’s work is interesting on many levels: for the way he makes use of technology; his ‘visceral’ approach to performance; and his exploration of this within a jazz context.
‘Beatjazz is what you get when you cross a sci-fi obsessed electronic jazz artist with a futurologist instrument inventor,’ notes Ashanti.
You can find out more about Ashanti & BeatJazz at his site.
