NOMINEE-Best Classical Artist 2013 Indie Music Channel Awards!
Les Fradkin, the virtuoso of MIDI Guitar, Electronic One Man Orchestra, presents "Lift Off" from his "One Link Between Them" CD featuring the revolutionary new instrument- The Starr Labs Ztar!
Robert Fripp once remarked in Guitar Player Magazine: "There is a new music to go with this new instrument. Therein lies my interest in the guitar synthesizer. That something entirely new will appear." This COULD be it! Come have a look and listen to the MIDI Guitar sound of the future.
This album has received wide acclaim in publications such as Keyboard Magazine and across the Internet.
Les, who is classically trained, is moving at Hyper speed. In this video, he's playing the Starr Labs Ztar MIDI Guitar in a Neo Classical meets Bach and Vivaldi influenced style on his own composition.
The Ztar can be strummed with string triggers or tapped with one or both hands as seen in this video.
The backing is done with Ableton Live using Clip launching and "follow actions" techniques.
The main lead sound is the Arturia Moog Modular V and the Logic ES2. Background sounds are from an M-Tron, Roland XV-5080 and Arturia Soft Synths. The sounds at the intro are made with Propellerhead Reason.
Take a Journey To The Stars!
