What is this thing and why are there tentacles

Hey. My name's Austen Jacobsen. I produce music under the alias "Realboy," and recently put out a couple EPs that I'm really proud of.

I have also been exploring a new means of performance.
Instead of DJing, like I'm used to with electronic music, I can now perform it on the fly, from scratch. Freestyle, improv, with Ableton Live.

So I'm still practicing. But I won't let my time go to waste! Each time I decide to hit record, I'm recording the individual stems as well and uploading them to soundcloud for your personal downloading and chopping use. Make a song using parts of my vocals or chop up synth lines for your own glitchy riffs, just have fun doing it. I sure as hell am.

Improv 004: With Friends! (and stems)

I had a couple friends over and we decided to jam. I had just re-worked my footpedal mappings to help control the state of percussion, so most of the video I'm testing that for dynamics. Mid-Jam, had to click record.

The Vocalist/rapper/freestyler we have with us today is Truth Now.

Improv 003: WITH STEMS!

Did another improv video, this time with the stems included. Want some sound to play with? Have at it. The "Stems" set on soundcloud will be replaced each time I upload another video, with the new video's stems. Have fun, fellow producers

A little bit of Techno.

The push is the driving force behind this one, playing around with Gessaffelstein's "Viol."

Fiddling About w/ Realboy: Improv 001

I've been improv jamming for a bit in my room, this is what comes out. Sometimes it isn't this good, sometimes it blows this video out of the water. But this is the time I finally decided to hit "record" on the camera, so this is what you got. Stay tuned for some more, very soon.
