RobinSukroso at the Chill Out Festival 2012
Over the next week or so, I will share with you some of the acts I'm looking forward to at the upcoming Chill Out Festival which I wrote about two days ago.
I will start with Robin Sukroso, a Berlin based musician who is a "One Man Band" influenced by the electronic music culture of Berlin and also an inventor of a new type of guitar called the Acpad Guitar. His aim is to combine electro and acoustic using one musical equipment.
Without turntables only using one guitar, RobinSukroso could be considered a very unusual “Live Dj” in Berlin. His own invention “The Acpad Guitar” enables him to lead smoothly from one song to another like a dj, through a long night of dancing. Musically and technically, he closes the gap between acoustic and electronic music.
You can watch him in action here.
I quite like it (except for the "Hey ya, hey ya" part that comes towards the end).
But there's a bit of a sad story - RobinSukroso's equipment and guitar invention was stolen after his last gig in Berlin. He is now hoping to raise some funds through a crowd funding wesbite, indiegogo.com/Robin-Sukroso.
You can watch RobinSukroso talk about it in the video below. Not sure what will he bring with him to Dubai when he performs at the Chillout Festival. Guess I will wait and see.
RobinSukroso is one of the supporting acts on the second day of the Chill Out Festival, on Saturday 21st April.
