One Man, One Theremin, One AudioCube

This is a live rehearsal video of Control Zone by Mark Mosher. Here’s what he has to say about it:

One Man, One Theremin, One AudioCube :^) In this video I perform the instrumental electronic music song “Control Zone” off of my album I HEAR YOUR SIGNALS which you can download.

I’m routing the Moog Etherwave Theremin analog signal into Ableton Live and convert the pitch-to-MIDI in real-time then route the signal to various virtual instruments hosted out of Live.

I then use a Percussa AudioCube in Sensor mode to add 4 additional dimensions of modulate in real-time. So 6 dimensions of spatial control. I’m changing the signal routing of the Theremin to route MIDI to different virtual instruments on the fly using the Novation Launchpad.

I definitely went for “Hendrix” in parts of the song.

Except that Hendrix would have played the theremin with his teeth and then set it on fire!

Check it out and let me know what you think about Mosher’s unique use of the theremin and AudioCube.
