The latest project from Bop, Oak and Jalex is “Microfunk Live” – an inspired concept, involving the collection of 30 samples from members of their site and the composition of six tunes which were then performed live and filmed. We spoke to Bop to find out more…

“Everyone was able to send to us one sample and then from all this material we wanted to make a tune. After some attempts and because of the extraordinary variety of the samples we changed the concept of the project a little. We decided to produce more tunes, then play it live and make a video of it. So, we took our sampler with chopped one-shots, drum synthesizer, laptop + some other devices and had fun with it.” 

“We  got around 30 samples. The samples was taken and collated in December last year. So it has taken around six months to make 6 tunes, as well as do the live performance and do the video in my previous rented apartment.”

Equipment we used:
1x Laptop
1x Launchpad
1x Korg Electribe ES-1 MK2
1x Korg Electribe ER-1
2x Midi Keyboard
1x E-mu 0404 usb Audio/MIDI Interface
1x Usb hub
1x Duck toy :)

There are plans to start more interesting projects so keep watching on
