I’m super happy with the dRachEmUsiK live rig for 2017! The new iPad Pro is powerful enough to be able to handle hardware and virtual instruments and processing in real time without a laptop or external mixers. The entire rig can be carried on to an airplane and takes under 15 minutes to set up and break down. Amazing. Cables, DI are stored in the side pocket of the EWI case. All I need from the venue is a single mic stand.
Composition and Pre-production work is being done mostly in Cosmosƒ Saturn and MetaSynth

Theremin and Electronic Wind Instrument are the primary instruments used to create this spontaneous sonic journey. Recorded in 2012 between the afternoon of November 12th and the morning of the 13th, there was very little planning regarding approach, structure, instrumentation or style. We would talk, share about our lives, eat, go to the market, sleep and in-between sit down and make music. The end result was a musical conversation between elements of our unconscious; a dream-world mirror of the surrounding shared conscious reality. Close your eyes, relax and experience what these simple yet emotionally rich dialogs have to say to you.
Immerse yourself in this whimsical, disturbing, soothing, raucous, ethereal universe of organic, alien soundscapes.
