Lemur users Thievery Corporation announce new shows!

December 15, 2009

Lemurized musicians, Thievery Corporation, borrow from the classically sensual and blunted sounds of their favorite Brazilian bossa nova, Jamaican dub reggae, vintage film soundtracks, and psychedelic rock to forge into new sonic territory.

The group is a major presence in the DC scene legendary for fierce independence, musically and politically, from genre-defying pioneers as Chuck Brown and Fugazi to grassroots organizations such as Positive Force and the Future of Music Coalition.

They will be returning to their hometown of Washington D.C. to play 4 new shows at club 9:30, and the response has been incredible. Of the shows, only one still has tickets available: Wednesday, January 20, and tix are going fast! To inquire about tickets, go to club 9:30’s website.

Hot Chip uses the Lemur!

December 9, 2009

Hot Chip have emerged from their bedrooms studios onto the UK music scene to become one of the most interesting electropop band in Britain over the last four years, a status that has gradually developed from the band’s formation in 2000.

The band is also well-known for their live shows, as they often reinvent their songs on stage and create a completely different sound. The Lemur has found a place of choice in their set up, effortlessly programmed and skillfully played by member Felix Martin:

“So far we have only used the Lemur in a live environment”, Felix explains, “where it fulfills a rather functional and plain role as a master controller for clips, scenes and FX in Ableton Live. I also use the Lemur to control the Dave Smith Polyevolver and an Elektron Machinedrum that I use, with Midi Thru signals going through Ableton. I have built my own patches for controlling those instruments. Even though they both have their own perfectly decent user interfaces, I like the idea of being able to control everything from one screen. I suppose I have an ideal of one day simply standing with the Lemur as my only performance tool, with the things that it controls sitting quietly in the background.”
