Paschal Joy

Happy Easter!

I find Daedelus' video, "LA Nocturn," to be about new life and a new way of seeing things. So what better monome way to send wishes for a joyful celebration of the Resurrection of Our Lord?

Daedelus is one of the pillars of the monome community. In fact, I think he was the first person to purchase a monome device from its creator (tehn), making him, therefore, the second user of the monome device in the world. He has become, really, a monome "virtuoso." He is well known for his "arm flinging" technique which makes sense (the application he uses triggers upon release, rather than pressing of the buttons; his "flinging"  ensures proper timing) and is also just cool to watch. It shows his excitement and gets you into the music as well. But he also has great videos, so check those out too.

Easter peace


  1. Triggers on release: that's an interesting way to go about it. Swell tune.

  2. I just got me a 64. Once I've got my summer band stuff out of the way, I can't wait to get to know it. Thanks for the Daedelus links, I have much homework to do. ;-)
