Fucktard Of The Week (or not?)

by Chris Randall
 



Of course, we all do this. That goes without question. But we don't film it and inflict it on others. So, he's just a fucktard for filming it and uploading it, not actually doing it, I guess. (Of course, most of us try to play with some semblance of timing, which bears mentioning. Quantization was invented for people like this.)


UPDATE: The verdict: not a fucktard, according to the readers of Analog Industries, who are well versed in such matters.

awww come on. fucktard is a bit harsh....poor guy. I think I saw another video a while back where his timing was actually pretty good, must have caught him on a bad day.

I saw this clip a few weeks ago and thought it was pretty good at the time, I think It's just the timing on the delay that makes it sound a bit out. Love the facial expressions......

If he lost the drum track, I'd be more into it.

It hardly qualifies as "improvisation", though.

I dunno. If I was going to show off, the standard industrial/techno octavo fiesta would be low on my list. It reminds me of that Japanese chick that was making the rounds a couple months ago; it's really quite easy to play that fast. I can easily play as fast as that Japanese lady, doing those octaves and and double-whammies. I don't have her theory, for sure, but the speed isn't a big deal. You're playing one note using four fingers. I thought it was more interesting that the bass player and drummer could keep up with her.

But the video above, any reasonably competent keyboard player can do; I'm not trying to be snobby or anything. Just sayin' that it's not exactly an "OMG" kind of thing.

It's not the gear, it's the wanking. And using a modular to do what he's doing puts him well into fucktard territory IMHO. ;)

...he seems to have no sense of swing or syncopation(or its very perverse)....thus = fucktard.

Hang on, I think that makes me a fucktard too.....

I dunno.... i've seen this vid before and I like it. If he's improvising, he's doing a damn good job as this is as good as anything i've heard from Juno Reactor or any of the other wave of Goa trance bands from the mid 90's. But then i've always been partial to that type of techno. While not omg material, it does makes for an impressive free jam.

it's a fairly spirited performance i'd say. Balzout

I wonder what he's like behind the wheel.

What the hell is that controller he's using- a CZ-3000?
