OCEAN ORBIT - DVD

"DVD with dmitry on vocoder. My friend Rehmat in NYC and I came up with this while talking about crazy NYC street vendors trying to sell DVD's and shouting out deals to to people"

"I'm the dancing fool behind the laptop, manning the vocoder and Traktor. My buddy Andy is on live synth, including an NES running a MIDINES cart! For live vocoding we use the Electro Harmonix Voice Box, which we got after seeing it on your site :-D

A lot of the interesting synth stuff is happening on the backing tracks. There's a lot of Andromeda on "DVD", for instance. "Wily Dragon" has a lot of MIDINES which is both being played live and on the backing track.

On the myspace page, the Forces cover has some Waldorf XT on it. Most of the tracks have at least some Yamaha Mo6 on them (which isn't all that exciting, haha). There's a new song which we hope to put up soon which uses nothing but the Waldorf XT, Andromeda, and MIDINES.

I haven't taken any of my synths out to live gigs yet, but I did just get a SID Station, which I hope to perform live with eventually. Mainly we're just trying to prevent having too much heavy gear to lug around. The pieces that do make it to live sets are the Motif Mo6 and the MIDINES, both of which are very light.

I posted a clip of the new SID Station here:

We also have more tunes up here:

We don't haven't put all of our tracks up on myspace yet though, as we're working with friends to get our vocals recorded and properly mixed (which is also why none of the songs on myspace have vocals as of yet)."
