Do you mean where is the music outside of the hip hop/pop/breakcore/freestyle jazz/rock music featured in these videos?
Its pretty easy to shrug off max as something of a distraction, but to the people who actually take the time to learn it (though I'm not saying you have to!) , they find that it opens new musical doors on a constant basis.
I'm not saying I necessarily like all the music featured in these videos, but I'm pretty tired of people trying to put down max/msp just because they can't get around the learning curve. Like any instrument, Max/msp does take time, but it allows the user a freedom of expression that is not available with most music software.
There is definitely a lot of very good, interesting music being made with max/msp (and other tools).
Besides, these videos are certainly a lot more interesting than the million "how to make beatz in fruity l00pz" videos that are on youtube.
Yeah, when describing Jamie Lidell, I would have said "One man Soul tornado", but his shows are amazing. He does things in a really unique way, but instead of being obtuse or inaccessible, it makes you rock out.
lolol. gabe (scratch monkey)'s an acquaintance/colleague/matey of mine, nice to see that old video getting some youtube action. there haven't been many chances for the powers of 10 to flex his throaty scratch skills, though he's a thoroughly pleasant rapper to observe. there's more powers action available here: http://www.myspace.com/djsfromouterspace
