Big news from Belgium, with this new ipad app released developed by Herrmutt Lobby (if you’re into M4L, you also gotta check his BeatFader module) . The beta version is available on the Vlek website : http://vlek.tumblr.com/post/18443761704/vlek-presents-beatsurfing
VLEK08/APP – A MIDI INSTRUMENT BUILDER FOR IPAD.
Developed by Herrmutt Lobby.
More info: beatsurfing.net
BUILD ORGANIC MIDI INSTRUMENTS.
– Create swarms of MIDI objects that fit your most delirious setup dreams. Just drag&mod.
– Overlap objects on layers, create new organic systems that bring back a human feel to your performances.
– Each object can interact with your DAW and/or alter any other object’s behaviour, creating an infinity of combinations.
– In-app editing: switch between edit and play modes in a split second.
BRING BACK EXPRESSION IN YOUR PERFORMANCE.
Build an instrument and play it, like a partition, in a 1000 different ways.
This video features 4 « operators »: the Line, the Circle, the Polygon and the Fader. Each of these operators allows you to build your own MIDI instruments from the ground up as if you were drawing them on the screen. The distribution of the objects and the trajectory of your fingers then help to reintroduce variety and a human feeling to your performance.
The Beatsurfing app is set to be released in Spring 2012.

Turnsteak : in the making
Let’s welcome Beast (1) first of a series of live session recorded by the Toronto based artist Math Rosen. For having the opportunity to play live on the same stage, I won’t teach you that his music kills it, you decide (but if you’re reading that right now, I’m pretty positive about seeing agreement in your eyes). But definitely, some artists clearly know what’s going on between their gear and what you’re hearing. Among them, some can control it, some are even doing pretty well and sometimes, even REALLY well.
Yeah, he’s that kind of guy… Check it out!
Recorded March 2012
