SK-10 Sampling Keyboard
When I was a Student at Hamilton College I took three video
classes from Ella
Gant, (one of coolest
faculty in the art department, in fact she is one of the only
members of the art faculty who uses a computer for more than
e-mail.. She was very supportive of me and all of her students
who are now at various art schools round the country....)
But the point is that she gave the best class assignment ever.
(Video art instructors take note!!) Due to the fact that no
matter how hard she tried to get us to do interesting work,
we would always find a way to turn her video assignments in
to some sort of music video... It must be frustrating to watch
really bad music videos year after year.
So one of the first assignments in Video 2, was to make a "music
video". The catch was that each student had to compose
the music themselves, perform the song, and since the bulk of
popular music takes the form of love songs, each song had to
be a love song....
The other requirement is was that the music had to be composed
on a cheap Casio keyboard... I created a song to Laurie Pensive,
a character that Trey and I still fight over b/c we both believe
that we made her up on our own. I based the song on the Laurie
Pensive story that I wrote in my
This keyboard might help you jump-start you music video career,
it sure jump-started mine, and it has a 10 second sampler and
mini sequencer It rocks...
