Something entertaining for the weekend. Last month we mentioned that Native Instruments had a contest to see the electronica supergroup “Mostly Robot”. This week they’ve released some tour footage explaining their combination of men and machines making music.
Win A Trip To Sonar In Barcelona To See The Native Instruments Supergroup.
Mostly Robot are performing at this years Sonar festival in Barcelona and Native Instruments would like to invite along one lucky pair.
But just who are Mostly Robot?
Conceived by Native Instruments, Mostly Robot will utilize an advanced array on NI hardware and software, pioneering a creative interplay between technology and cutting-edge artists from diverse musical backgrounds.
Mostly Robot is a real band, made up of exceptional artists: Jamie Lidell, Tim Exile, Jeremy Ellis, Mr Jimmy and DJ Shiftee. Truly ‘live’, each musician plays independently of each other – instruments are synced only by the human element, with no MIDI clock or prepared grid obstructing their creativity.
Placing themselves in the tradition of inspiring jazz concerts, Mostly Robot draw their magic from bringing highly skilled individuals together, creating a unique momentum. What’s more, the Sónar showcase is a rare moment to catch a glimpse of yet unreleased song material from individual band members.
So it appears that Native Instruments have pulled in a number of their most forward thinking endorsees and sat them down for a jam, and looking at the group performers this is going to be a very interesting performance indeed. That said this is a lot more than just a booth or show presentation as its being billed as a full on show as part of the Sonar festival itself and they are bringing along Berlin’s extraordinary design collective Pfadfinderei for the show visuals which should prove no corners are being cut in showcasing these cutting edge artists, and this should prove to be a blinder of a show.
So do you fancy seeing this and all that the Sonar festival has to offer this year. If so get yourself over to the Native Instruments Mostly Robot prize draw entry page and try your luck to win this great once in a lifetime prize.
