The monome was spotted being used in a performance by Imogen Heap on Late Night with David Letterman. Imogen uses the monome 256 model connected to a laptop sitting on the piano. In her performance she uses a combination of live samples and pre-recorded loops proving how great this product is in the hands of an accomplished artist.
Although not identified by name (or function), Letterman does notice the monome at the end of the performance. To see this kind of exposure for an innovative open source product is wonderful. Check out the Letterman clip as well as a monome bonus after the break.
This bonus video features a monome that sequences not just audio clips, but video as well. This way you can get a live video perfomance at the same time. [Eliot] ran across it a couple of weeks ago and mentioned that it reminds him of the Amateur – Lasse Gjertsen video. We agree and think that the monome is perfect for making this kind of product.
