What in the world is making that noise? All computers?
might be it, might not
I don't know how he does it but it's lovely.
I can say for certain that he has a midi pickup in his main 6 string, so what you're hearing is a bunch of synthesizers (and the light show for that matter) being triggered by his bass. He seems to have multiple expression pedals to control the volume of each layer of synth. I saw him on this tour, it was unbelievable. I think Squarepusher, while not for everyone, is one of the most creative and innovative musicians out there. I loved the album he did with all vocoder vocal lines, Shobaleader One, that was the shizzle.
Here's a link to the video I shot at the San Francisco stop of this tour. It's the bass solo part at the end, broken in to two parts:
Huge Squarepusher fan. Love what he does with bass. But yes, I believe he's controlling various synth voices and parameters via MIDI with his bass.
Man... that is just insane. I seriously wish I could fathom how to put together something that would create that sound live. On a budget of course. No matter if you are or aren't a fan of that kind of music, he is one absolute bad ass on the bass. There is NO denying.
Somebody tell Dr. Bleepenbloopenshtein to jump on TB and sell me one of those bad boys... Along with everyone else in this thread...
Yeah no kidding. I do believe I would purchase one. Maybe two.
