For their 2016 EP “Lichter” Mouse On Mars asked us to use some of our robots. Nothing easier than this! We had some universal robotic actuators laying around which we customized according to their wishes.
The 15-minute EP which you can now hear and buy is a wonderful mix of dubby organic synth, percussion and robotic organic drums (puhh, so much organic everywhere!). The robotics is natural, still precise; one can hear the robots escpecially good at the live HiHat parts. MOM recorded everything in a huge jam, this was cut, taken apart and put together again with their special secret sauce in MOM’s magic studio in Berlin.
What we like is the idea to have universal actuators which you can apply to nearly anything, mount easily and control by MIDI. MOM played on percussions, Hihat and random stuff. Additional live percussion was added by thier drummer Dodo. WhoopWhoop!
