The second installment of my Mixed Up series has now seen the light. Let me introduce you to the Mixmaster 1200.
The Mixmaster 1200 is a wireless scratching device for the turntablist who prefers to deliver his/her scratches like a 5 star chef. As you can see, the Mixmaster does not have any beaters attached to it. This is because it has small laser powered plasma emitter beaters that actually heat up the airwaves around the device itself producing the unique sounding aural explosions.
Have you ever wondered what a banana mixed with a strawberry sounds like? Or how about kiwi-watermelon puree? Watch this video and you will find out.
I found this old blender from a flea market and noticed that the names of the different blending modes are very similar to the terminology used in DJing. So I decided to turn this kitchen appliance into a DJ mixer.
The audio tracks are triggered by inserting different fruits into the blender. The buttons on the front panel control the mixing modes and you also have two different types of transformer switches for cutting the sound in and out.
Pow! Sorry for the lack of updates. I moved to Montréal a month ago and I don’t have Interweb connection at home yet, so I haven’t really had the chance to write anything. Anyhow, Montréal is proving out to be a nice city. Pictures and more info some other day.
In the meantime, why don’t you listen to some of my Månsteri Mixtapes. They are now available for download over at the revamped music section http://originalhamsters.com/music/. If you are a promoter in Montréal and like my style, don’t be afraid to email me at matti (at) originalhamsters.com. I’m getting serious withdrawal symptoms from not having turntables around.
Come to Kauppayhtiö today to hear me play. It’s Månsteri 5.0
Sorry, no mixtape this time, but I’m gonna have some live visuals again on the window of Kauppayhtiö. The store will be revamped pretty soon. I’m going to start printing the t-shirts myself and pretty soon you’ll get also posters, buttons and other Månsteri related stuff.
