I'm sure some of you remember the wacky 'reactable' synth.

See it here in use with Bjork http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHeX6yg95xU on the BBC's 'Later'

It's neat to see tha table in action, but what happened to Bjork? Did she forget how to make music? That was just awful.

On the basis of that performance I'd have to agree

I saw her on Coachella... great Show, but the whole reactable synth, although it looked impressive, seemed like the guy that was playing it, didn't get the most of it... I think it was the new song "Declare independence"...

Anyway, it was an amazing presentation (well I like Bjork), very powerful voice and great quality of their musicians. And they seemed to have another type of touch screen synths or sequencers, besides a bunch of synths in the back (I was very far, not able to distinguish between them).

Load of high-falluting musical fart knockery, if you ask me.

I reckon Kenneth Chumley-Warner Erhardt would have a flute patch sussed within seconds, but of course he'd never share it.

I saw her at Shoreline with Mark Bell on Reactable. The big screens were on it almost as much as they were on Bjork.

Maybe they let her use it on tour because they're planning on actually releasing these things, free exposure?

Be interesting to see the price tag.
Whenever people agree with me I tend to feel I must be wrong.

Noticed a couple of the new KP3's and I reckon the other touchscreen was one of the Jazz Mutant Lemurs.
