Look Mum No Computer Session With Red Bull Music

Published on Jun 13, 2018 LOOK MUM NO COMPUTER

"Here is the See Hear Now session i did with Red Bull Music!

From Red Bull Musics Site :-

'Hacker-come-musician Sam Battle dealt with the loneliness of going solo in typically inventive manner: he gave his synth a face. Now making electronic agit-pop as Look Mum No Computer, the 27-year-old started out, like many before him, playing guitar in bands. But he’d always been into DIY, taking his dad’s soldering iron to household appliances as a kid and teaching himself to circuit bend with his toys.

Eventually, he built up to making weird and wonderful musical machines: check out the flamethrower organ which shoots jets of fire as it plays, or the fully–rideable synth bike, which pumps out beats to the tempo of its wheels. And let's not forget the terrifying instrument comprised of 50 singing Furbies. Essentially, he’s a modern-day musical Frankenstein.

In this energetic See. Hear. Now. session, you can see Battle playing Kosmo the modular synth. This huge touring synth, he says, is relatively 'sensible' by his standards – aside, of course, from the aforementioned animatronic face.

Unsurprisingly, Look Mum No Computer’s songs are often about embracing a lack of convention. Second track Groundhog Day rails against the monotony of a 9-to-5 existence governed by Post-It notes and promotions, while Modern Gas calls out the hollowness of politics, capitalism and social media. ‘GAS’, Battle tells us, also stands for Gear Acquisition Syndrome: an addiction to purchasing synths.'"
