The Horrorist Live in East Germany

I’m off to perform two live shows in East Germany this weekend. One of the events is in an underground cave. I’ve played a underground cave before in Germany but I’m not sure this is the same one. Last time we drove miles (kilometers!) into the middle of nowhere to find thousands of cars in a field. Then at one spot people were just walking into a hole. It was pretty crazy, cold and the acoustics were much better than you would think. I’m not sure vibrating tons of rock above your head is a good idea but hey nothing ever goes wrong at these things right?

By the way I’ve recommended MadMimi before (article: here) for letting your fans know your doing something via email and here’s the latest promotion I sent out last night regarding these live shows: http://mim.io/570f2

5 iOS Music Apps

Here’s a few recordings I made with 5 iOS music creation apps. Many of these apps I’ve owned on the iPhone but never really used because the screen was too small. On the iPad these are all quite joyful.

Humanthesizer

Calvin Harris – Humanthesizer from ahpcs on Vimeo.

Finally a synth to rival the Minimoog. What could it be? A synth made of young women in bikinis of course!

“Right now my foot’s getting painted with some of the special connective paint which is going to turn me into a sort of like human wire.” – Calvin Harris

Barkly Turntable

There are plenty of beautiful boutique turntables out there but what’s interesting about the $1298 Barkly Turntable is that it’s sold at chain store Anthropologie.

“A pitch-perfect piece of nature, this smooth slice of ashwood is outfitted with a Premotech motor and a Rega tonearm, a weighty glass platter and adjustable spike legs. Wood, glass. Handmade in USA” – anthropologie.com
