Conte vs. Daft Punk – Doin’ It Right

Jack Conte has released a new video remix of Daft Punk’s Doin’ It Right, making cool use of a Keith McMillen Instruments QuNeo and a Novation Launchpad.

Conte’s video makes great use of cheap gear and a DIY setup. It’s basically done with Ableton Live, Final Cut Pro and some elbow grease. His ‘making of’ video, below, explains the details:

  1. How can someone shit all over such a great song like this? Thumbs down to synthtopia for posting this terrible cover of such a great song.

    1. I bet your music must be very innovative and contemporary. Everyone knows the people who makes the best music are the ones who complains on the internet about other people’s music.

    1. Exactly. Besides, to complain about the music is somehow missing the point.

      I think that these videos are actually not supplements for the music, but rather the other way around: this is a really cool DIY multimedia art installation that happens to interact with music.

    2. Plus, whether I like this music or not has nothing to do with it being good or bad; my tastes musically and whether music is good or bad are totally different things.

  2. This is brilliant on many levels. And Im sure I saw some black and white keys in there somewhere. 🙂

    I know Jack used to do all video songs, where you saw every note being played on an actual instrument. I’d like to see what gear he’s using for his new stuff.

  3. Anybody bored to death of this super glitchy stuff? It’s not even close to original or innovative anymore. The only thing shocking about it, is how boring it is.

  4. This is what I really hate about the internet: people are so very rude. This is a very creative and likeable guy that has made lots of great video’s that require inventivity, musicality and weeks, sometimes months of work. Why are you guys so judgemental? It’s ok to not like the song of course, but be a little more sensitive and try to at least see that someone is putting his creative heart on the table.
    While a substantial group of people gives this guy a bunch of money for just doing what he does, without restrictions, you are just trying to hit him down. The classical composer Bartok once said: a competitions are for horses, not for artists. I rest my case.

  5. hey everybody! this is jack – saw all these comments, and just wanted to offer to chime in on the conversation – my music has always been polarizing. some people are super into it, and some people hate it with a passion!! that’s ok with me! i don’t really care to reach EVERYONE with my music. as long as there are some people that dig it, then i can make a living doing what i love to do, and making the music that i love to make. anyway – huge thanks to my defenders and fans for the kind words and support! you guys keep me going….

    1. Jack: just keep doing what you’re doing…I have loved the music that you make with Nataly ever since my daughter hipped me to it. I have recently expanded beyond my jazz drumming into electronica (Ableton, iPad, QuNeo, QuNexsus, iPhone, etc.) and it’s taking me places I never thought I would go musically. Guys like you that push the envelope are what I need to keep moving…thanks for sharing, being vulnerable and for moving forward.
