How to: Electric Rock Piano and Organ [Videos]

Amazing Street Performer – Dub FX – Beatboxing, Looping, Singing – Reggae/Hip Hop [Video]

This guy is ridiculous, you gotta hear this shit. I’d buy his cd if I saw him doing that shit in the street..

I have no idea who this guy is or where he is from, but he’s amazing. (He says his name is Dub FX in the beginning). I think this really speaks to the volume of talent out there that’s still left to be discovered around the world. Never underestimate people.

Just found another ridiculous video from Dub FX on the roof top, he’s got plenty, (and a pretty big following too) he’s dirty:


Make a Rubber Band Shock Mount for your Boom Mic for only $3!

When attaching a boom mic to a pole, you need a special mount to insulate the microphone from pole noise.

Velocity Touch Sensitive Interfaces, Pressure Sensitive Ribbons, 3D Virtual Hand-Tracking Midi Controllers – Music is Still Growing

When I look at some of the new interfaces/instruments that continue to be rolled out, it makes me think about how each new musical device that comes out offers it’s own distinct set of new opportunities for artists. That then leads me to think about all the opportunities that can be created when you combine multiple devices like this together. This forces me to conclude that we have not even come close to seeing, or hearing, the full potential of what music is capable of being today. In other words, there is A LOT of room for growth. I think music creation is getting more interesting than it ever has been.  Check some of this stuff out:
