Kebu Live – Le Carnaval des Étoiles

Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures a performance by synthesist Kebu, Le Carnaval des Étoiles, live at The Gathering 2016.

Here’s what he has to say about the technical details of the performance:

The song was performed using only analog synthesizers, either played live or sequenced. The performance was recorded directly from the mixer to a stereo track and later mixed together with the ambience from the arena. A couple of bum notes were cut out and replaced with rehearsal takes.

Equipment used in this song: Roland Alpha Juno 1&2, Juno 60, TR-808; Alesis Andromeda A6, Korg Mono/poly, Polysix, Poly 61; Jomox AirBase99, Touched-by-sound DRM1, Oberheim Matrix 1000, DSI Tetra, Akai MPC2500 (only for MIDI sequencing), Yamaha 01V96, Lexicon MPX1, MPX500, MPX550 as well as a midi patchbay and additional preamps for my mixer.

The song comes from his debut album, To Jupiter And Back.

  1. I always enjoy seeing KEBU videos…bring back memories and inspire to disconect the computer and reconnect only the hardware instruments.

  2. Kebu’s way of doing things is truly amazing to watch. He gives sensationalism to the gear by actually playing it and not trying to confine it to words. He uses old gear proving the re-hash of old technology is really mute point, but most of all he endures a signature style that synths will forever be associated with. Thanks for this video and thanks Kebu for all your hard work.
