Not pictured: You, smashed out of your gourd while sweating profusely, trying to figure out what the hell you’re staring at and why you can’t stop jumping.

ABLETON: “The show revolves around Ableton Live software on custom made super-computers, which we remotely access and control with Behringer BCR2000 midi controllers.” (for those not familiar with Ableton, there’s a really good tutorial DVD available quite cheaply – view here) SCREENS: “Next to the ethernet remote computer screens there are four Minimoog Voyagers, the classic analog synthesizers. They’re a 30-year old design.” MOOGS: “We can mix, shuffle, trigger loops, filter, distort samples, EQ in and out, transpose or destroy and deconstruct synth lines. We keep some surprises on the side too!” VISUALS: “There’s a direct connection between our rig and the lights and visuals of the show. The light and video engineers can also add or control layers during the show.” SYNTHS: “Inside the pyramid are synthesizers and remote controls connected to the rest of the music equipment and computers, which are in rack-mounted towers off stage.” TEAMWORK: “Working the music equipment, lighting and video equipment, and building the pyramid for each show takes around 10 people, including both of us.”
