Max Says Hi

Hello LEMUR fans

I dropped into the lemurplex last week for the first time on this feb residency. Leif gave me a tour of the plex and all the instruments, and I've since begun working on a piece for the Feb 29th show with dancer/choreographer Ellen Godena. 

The xylobot (clanger) will be my main focus for the next couple weeks, as I work out the piece. I will be controlling the robots via a midi mallet controller that I play called the Marimba Lumina. It can play the robots directly, or send them all kinds of quick machiney arpeggios. Last week I also discovered the midi wind chimes controller, which is really interesting when driving the mod bots.  I'm back at LEMUR this week, so maybe some more updates soon.
