Leather & snakeskin MIDI controller wearable


NYC electronic artist Rucyl Mills hacked an M-Audio USB MIDI controller into the fashionably wearable Elektro-07 music controller –

I built the elektro-07 so I could control the sonic and visual parameters of my live performances without having to look deep into the eye of my laptop, hunched over in computer music stance. I’m still learning how to play it.. Software wise, it runs a maxMSP/Jitter patch smoothly, connected to my laptop by a long usb cable. Major thanks to Luke DuBois. Originally it was named the Chakakhantroller after Chaka Khan… but you wouldn’t believe how many people don’t get the reference.. so I changed it to Elektro-07 after my newly launched label, Elektrocardio. Next version will be wireless, and yes… it’s made of black leather and snakeskin.

Chakakhantroller = best controller name ever. – elektro-07 v.1 [via Create Digital Music]

    Sorry to call BS on this but it is just an Akai MPD pad that someone slipped into a wearable housing.

    However the person wearing it won’t be able to make it output max velocity due to the flimsy build w/o causing bruises to the skin under the pads.
