Bertolt Meyers prefers the controlled limitations of the modular over the overwhelmingly open-ended possibilities of a DAW for his creative expressions. What makes his relationship with his modular setup unique is that Meyers is not only controlling it – he is an essential part of it.
DJ & MODULAR LIVE SETS
Through his live performances and creative output, Bertolt Meyers highlights the possibilities of creating and controlling music using the mind as a direct source of input. He is an artist who embodies the limitless potential at the intersection of technology and human creativity. He makes dynamic, emotive house and techno with dancefloors in mind. His debut release ‘Walk The Night’ on DESSERT (out on September 3rd) encapsulates his truly unique approach in the form of two club-ready productions, with a remix courtesy of Hannes Bieger. His second EP entitled ‘Focal Drift’ is already scheduled to follow shortly after.
Bertolt Meyer plays 1-2h DJ sets, typically in a club or similar venue, which include melodic techno and tech-house, and indie dance between 115 and 135 bpm. He feels most at home at around 126 bpm but can also do down-tempo-ish background music for non-dance events. He DOES NOT do wedding-DJ-type stuff where people can request their favorite pop song and he typically does not take audience requests. No use of the synlimb arm prosthesis adapter for DJing.
He also performs live on synthesizers and drum computers, in combination with or without the DJ sets (see above), in which he extensively uses the synlimb arm prosthesis. In those shows, he doesn’t just play records, but mixes records with playing live on synthesizers and drum computers. 120-132bpm, best overall described as melodic techno and house.
