Los Angeles-based producer and controllerist Yeuda Ben-Atar (better known as electronic music performer and beatmaker Side Brain) recently stopped by Dubspot NYC to explain and demonstrate how he utilizes a 1980s Nintendo video game system controller with Ableton Live. The Power Glove controller originally released in 1989, was the first peripheral interface controller to reproduce human hand movements on a television or computer screen in real time.
Yeuda grew up playing keyboards and guitars in the 90s, but as an avid gamer he has always searched for ways to incorporate his love of videogames with his music. In this interview, Yeuda talks about his influences and inspirations, controller designs and interface devices, the similarities between video games and digital audio workstations (DAWs), mapping the Power Glove to control Ableton Live, using Max for Live, using the computer as a musical instrument, and developing a unique voice and presentation within the crowded world of modern electronic music!
