My friend Walex and I started an electronic music duo this winter. We’ve been learning ableton and we’re working on getting gigs. We’ve already played at the 9:30 club (voted #1 club in america in 2008) and we’re poised to play many more. Check out volerlavedette.com to see more. Basically we just got a copy of Ableton and a midi controller and we just started experimenting, all the time. Learning new ways to create different sounds, finding different riffs that work together. We are by no means done with this task, but we’re off to a good start. 4 years ago

I really want to do this, I wouldnt mind doing it on my own but duos music just seems more classy and fuller than solo artists. Justice and Daft punk are 2 of my favourite duos, unbelievable mixes on their alive album and I went to see justice at oxegen here in ireland a couple of weeks ago… best night of my life. Well, I’ve started creating music at a friends house, he’s recording riffs off my guitar and messing around onn the computer with them but I want to learn all of his side of it and then learn how to mix it up on decks. Just wondering, does anyone know what Gespard Auge’s job is in Justice? Xavier seems to do all the work and he just twists a few knobs here and there and then waves to the fans. let me know if u know, thanks… 6 years ago
I am currently making a living doing something similar to electronic music. I play Harmonica, sing, percussion, bass, my partner plays guitar, sings backup. I have just recently purchased a Handsonic 10 and will be incorporating it into the band soon I hope.
we use backup disk that we either buy or create ourselves and we do covers of all different genres. I know you all may be thinking of keybords and beat boxes and all that and we are very close to that. The way the world is chaning, I beleive there is lots of need for all forms of entertainment, so get started, you can quit your day job if you do well, look at all the DJ’s that are working, the karaoke nuts, it’s worthwhile.

I was thinking about joining the “start a band” goal but frankly, bands suck. Better to be in a (vaguely heterosexual) electronic music duo! A la Yello, Sparks, etc.
In case’s somebody is interested, I’m into drum machines, synths, etc, the geeky stuff. So, I can be the moustached one in the duo (see my “grow a moustache” goal). 9 years ago
