Deadmau5 talks touch-control tech, redlining analogue gear and collaborating with icons #MusicMonday
Interesting peice in Music Tech with Deadmau5 on his custom DJ app:
Though much of the music industry has come to a grinding halt due to the pandemic, Deadmau5 is still very much in demand. Armed with OSC/Pilot, his trademark ‘mau5head’ helmet and an impeccable light show, Zimmerman has performed live at drive-in concerts in Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. During the lockdown, he’s also released the track Pomegranate with Pharrell and Chad Hugo of The Neptunes. All of this beats on as he puts out new material with Steve Duda as BSOD, and performs live sets as Testpilot.
