Apples in Stereo mastermind Robert Schneider demonstrates his latest technical combo: a vintage 80s synthesizer hooked up to a recently released EEG game controller, which allows him to change the pitch of the synth’s output with his thoughts.
I particularly like the non-glitzy surroundings. The guy is sitting in shorts and t-shirt on a beat-up couch, unshaven and with his hair poking out in all directions, looking like a stoner and showing off his bizarre invention. It’s very far from the Kraftwerk esthetic, yet some of the tech is decades later than Kraftwerk’s.
Check out the latest Apples album, Travellers in Space and Time! I’m currently listening to it randomly interleaved with, among other things, Cathedral’s latest effort, which makes for a pretty interesting contrast.
Thanks to Moomin for the tip-off.
