Here is the most work intensive performance video I've ever done.
You can get the mp3 and lyrics here.
You can get the Ableton workfile that I used to perform this song here. Bare in mind that much of its programming is dependent upon the midi controllers that I used to perform it (Behringer FCB010 Footcontroller, Akai Professional MPK25, and a simple Midi out/in patchbay made with Max MSP by the saintly Brian Cass) to run the dummy clips. If you want to get savvy with this sort of thing, I advise you to explore the Ableton Forums and Brian's very useful macpro video tutorials.
It took me 3 months to arrange, rehearse, shoot, and edit.
It would mean the world to me if you'd share it with folks that would appreciate it.
I wrote the song in 2003 for a friend who wanted to do a boyband project. At the time I was fully aware that there existed a legendary funk odyssey called "Chameleon" by Herbie Hancock (all funk-obsessed musicians are required to fill 20% of their 3-hour set at the Block Island club with a rendition of the Headhunters jam). Over the years I played it live often and toyed with the arrangement a lot over time, but I never really officially released it. So let's pray that this ridiculous rendition, with its highly offensive lyrics and discomforting subliminal imagery, is the song's final resting place.
