Yello Performing Live with No Cables?
Update: Note the following does not express the opinions of the site. Readers are free to send in what they want, and readers are free to leave their opinion in the comments.
The original post:
Remember the image to the left of Boris Blank of Yello with his synth setup from this previous post? What we couldn't quite see is the setup appears to be missing some very important cabling. That of course, is forgiven for promo shots, but take a look at the second image below captured from the live performance video above.
MATRIXSYNTH reader D' Naab 136 of Analogue Renaissance, caught it and sent it in. He had the following to say:
"I was a bit gutted yesterday that I was unable to attend the first 'live' performance of Yello yesterday in Berlin. Even more so when I saw the first attached picture. Wow, full modular setup + Oberheim two-voice + Modor + ... . However, found the lack of patchcables in (and going out of) some of the modulars a bit strange, but that picture was from during the buildup and thought most still had to be connected...
This morning I saw a movie from last night on their page. No change in patches and apparenly they can play the modorf without power,midi/usb and audio plugged into it.
Quite happy I did not spend the money on this charade."
The 3rd image below is from a video on German TV also in via D' Naab who mentions: "None of the modulars and synths or even the mixer have power."
