  • Another old-school synthesizer music video by Kebu

    I just uploaded the music video for my second single from my upcoming album on Youtube:

    I composed the tune already in 2008 and the tune is a tribute to one of my biggest
    influences, Jean Michel Jarre.

    Only analog synthesizer were used in recording the tune. The tune was also recorded by analog gear only and mixed with an analog mixer.

    Equipment used: Hohner String Performer, Roland Alpha Juno, Roland Juno 60, Korg Mono/Poly, Korg Poly-61, Moog Prodigy, Logan String Melody, Arp Axxe, Touched by Sound DRM1, Vermona DRM1 MkIII, Roland TR-808 (snare attack only), Electro Harmonix Small Stone, Lexicon MPX500, Allen&Heath GS1, Yamaha MT4x. Cubase & Live only used as MIDI sequencers with the tape sync handled by a Roland TR-626.

      Fantastic..video and music are
      where are you filming? with the lighting you have great depth..who is filming?
      great job on everything.

      I think you should make the cap and shorter beard in your avatar your "offical look".

                  Hey Kebu, let us know when the CD is released! I would like to buy it. I would rather buy the CD than the MP3 download.

                  ...Music can be used to stimulate mass emotion, while mathematics cannot; and musical incapacity is recognized (no doubt rightly) as mildly discreditable, whereas most people are so frightened of the name of mathematics that they are ready, quite unaffectedly, to exaggerate their own mathematical stupidity.

                  G.H. Hardy in A Mathematician's Apology (London 1941).

                    That Mono/Poly stole the show IMHO.

                    Great stuff! JMJ will be proud when he hears this, I think.

                      The music is great, the video is great, the effects are great, the presentation is great. The only thing that lets it down (and I hate to say this) is you. Your avatar pic looks way better (but hey, mine looks better than me. And just take a look at mine!). Its not so much you as the image you present and let's face it, if you are going to go to all that effort to make a vid like that, why not go the whole hog and finish the picture. What you've got so far is a bit like da Vinci creating the Mona Lisa and then signing it with a felt tip!
                      I'd say lose (or trim) the beard and dress up for the part, have some fun with it.

                      Of course, if I could create that sort of stuff, maybe I'd grow a beard too! You do great work, why not take it that final last step to perfection.

                        or he can just be himself. I liked it in the spirit of keeping it natural. +++++

                        or got hair extentions, a personal trainer, and shake his buns like Britney hmmmm backup dancers?

                          That's true but if you are putting on a show part of it is often NOT being yourself. You still gotta smile on stage, even if you've had a crap day. That's part of the show, part of having a professional attitude vs just showing up. All I am saying is that in my opinion, a little showmanship would not hurt the finished product.
                          Of course, it still works and it's still bloody good as it is and if that works too then good on him, it is after all his show, his work but when you put something like that up (or even the crap I put up LOL) you sorta hope for some feedback, be it good, bad or indifferent. You might not like it all and not everyone will agree but that's the point of putting it up really isn't it? I am just offering my honest opinion. Up to him if he pays it any notice. I won;t be offended if he, or anyone else, thinks I am wrong.

                            Gribs: I'll let you all know when the CD is released! Unfortunately, there is a lot of work ahead so it won't be released until 2012.

                            the_big_e & Nonchalant: Thanks, I appreciate your opinions! I'm quite used to comments regarding my t-shirts and beard by now, you're not the only ones. It's all about being myself. Also, t-shirts and jeans is what I usually wear when throwing a gig, so that has been logical to me so far. But things are always open for a change...

                              just be yourself, dood! Look @ Dan Deacon, he looks like a college professor or grad student in jeans and t-shirt and he rocks crowds and makes money
