Strange Music Instruments: The Concertinome is a custom made instrument combining the concertina accordion with the monome style keyboard and electronic air pressure sensors.
It was made by Espen Sommer Eide 2009 and demonstrated in this concert at Visningsrommet USF, Bergen, Norway.
This is the first live TV-performance by the norwegian band Royksopp in seven years.
The song The Girl and the Robot is taken from their latest album Junior.
Guest appearance by the swedish electropop-songwriter Robyn.
This is the music video for Casiokids‘ Fot i Hose.
Old analogue and trashy keyboards, pop melodies and a digital & shadow puppet theatre make up the Norwegian electro-troupe that is Casiokids.
The band sprung out of an idea of making electronic music more visual, but has developed further into being a collective of theatre blended with pop melodies often sung in their native language and influenced by afro-beat, techno and out-and-out pop. The music draws similarities and takes inspiration from Paul Simon’s “Graceland”, Ivor Cutler, New Order, King Tubby, Bob Hund, Cornelius and Fela Kuti.
Casiokids are new to me. If you know anything more about them, leave a comment!
