Demo track for the launch party of 'Madplayer' @ Ministry of Sound May 2002
Earl Zinger was initially asked to do the demo, but he politely turned it down and asked me to take on the task, which I reluctantly agreed to. It involved writing a piece of music entirely on the device, and then 'performing' it in front of about 100 people at a special launch party at the Ministry of Sound in May 2002. Even though the 'Madplayer' had a built in sequencer, I cheated a bit by recording loops from it into Logic, and then arranging a track which I ended up playing from a CD. I also added a few of my own sounds, most notably a Roland SH-101 bass line.
Anyway, I'd completely forgotten about the track, and stumbled across the CD this evening, so I thought I'd upload it to Soundcloud. It features Rose Smith on vocals, who sung on my 'Life Changes' LP.
