Whilst the concept of a non-keyboard MIDI controller is nothing new, the AudioCubes do represent an elegant solution to the age-old dilemma of how to make live performance more interesting for electronic musicians. The performer can gesture around these coloured illuminated cubes to control synthesizer or effect parameters in real time.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
