Native Instruments is giving away a Sónar trip package for two to watch Mostly Robot's live Debut on June 14-17, 2012.
This good for two package includes flights from an airport near your location, hotel accommodations, and festival tickets to the "Sónar Festival Pass" - where Mostly Robot is set to deliver a unique event showcasing electronic music used in live performance.
If like me you are asking who Mostly Robot is - they are actually five well-known artists coming from various fields joining together for the first time. The boys of Mostly Robot, namely Jamie Lidell, Tim Exile, Jeremy Ellis, Mr Jimmy and DJ Shiftee, will utilize an advanced array of NI hardware and software. This event is set to pioneer a live interplay between the latest music technology and artists from diverse musical backgrounds.
Jamie Lidell is known for his innovative electronic live performances with his voice as his main instrument. DJ Shiftee is a 2-time DMC World Champion and a Harvard degree holder which is known for his amazing scratches and cuts. Mr Jimmy is Jamie Lidell's keyboard player and will serve as the group's harmonic lynchpin. Tim Exile is popular for his use of effects and sound mangling. And last but not the least Jeremy Ellis is a finger-drumming virtuoso that will serve as the groups rhythmical mastermind.
Mostly Robot will jam in the tradition of jazz concerts - highly skilled individuals together creating unique music. These musicians will play independently of each other - instruments are synced only by the human element, with no MIDI clock or prepared grid obstructing their creativity. To make it even more exciting, Berlin's design collective Pfadfinderei will accompany the band with visuals. Using the note events, controller data and audio material created by artists as they play the Native Instruments controllers, visual elements are developed and interpreted in real time on screen allowing the audience to follow the virtuosity of each musician with their eyes.
The raffle is set to run from May 16 to May 23, 2012. To join you have to be 18 years of age and older.
