Live in Cyprus – Loop 2016

9th February

I was invited to amazing festival in Cyprus in Jan 2016. Lefkosia Loop Festival happens in Cyprus in the first week of January (5,6th this year). This was a 5th edition of the festival with already established audience and really diverse acts. What a great start of the year! I brought my Elektron boxes both Machinedrum and Octatrack, OP1 and performed with first attempt of live patching my Serge modular setup (Creature+Quad Slope combo). I was amazed with warm welcome from the audience who seemed to enjoy the show. Following the festival I recorded new tunes with new and old friends from Cyprus. Hoping to take them live soon, so watch this space.

 

 



Elektron Rack – Do it yourself

1st June

Few people asked me how did I make my Elektron rack, which have been part of my live setup for the last few years. I used it in RPE Duo and Space F!ght among others. That’s why I decided to make a guide or at least posted few photos showing the rack in detail. Hope it is useful. I will be making pdf to cover more details so please email me if you have any questions or suggestions.

Background

It all started after reading this thread. I decided to do this rack/stand to fit both Elektron machines into the hand luggage. The aim was to have secure solution for travelling via cheap airlines and reduce the flight costs for my gigs in Europe. It also meant saving space on my desk which filled up with new gear quickly. Unfortunately it didn’t fulfill the security for gear …
