This is a great idea and the subject matter really appeals to me as this is one of the issues that I think a lot of us face in finding time to make music and one of the big reasons we use mobile.
I’m looking forward to the whole series.
Here’s the description of the video:
“Being a father, husband, full-time marketing employee and part-time DJ leaves very little time for actual music production and creativity. Alex and I from KM Music Productions are developing this short series of videos using different midi controllers and iOS devices to demonstrate how to utilize the most out of your commute, lunch break or any small bits of time you may have throughout the day. This way you can shove your iPad, iPhone or iPod into a bag or pocket and just hold your controller and focus on making music, pretty much anywhere.
In Episode 1 we are using DJ TechTools’ Midi Fighter Classic (which is bus powered) with an iPhone 5 using the USB camera connection kit, while running the iOS app BeatMaker2.
All samples are taken from Rick Fresco’s DJTT soundpack.
This jam is 100% unrehearsed, unplanned and completely improvised on the spot. This is meant for demonstration purposes and not as a performance.”
