Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Frank Carroll aka iProv, a experimental electronic musician, producer and controllerist, has been involved in the music business for many years, and has been influenced by electronic music since the 80's. He believes that making music and performing it should be a visual as well as a musical experience. So, he is now dedicated to combining both organic and electronic sounds, and hopes to blend all genres creating dance, ambient and cinematic based music that also involves the visual aspects of performance. iProv, is now firmly involved in the fast emerging underground electronic music scene in Cork City, Ireland, playing local showcase gig such as Ctrl-Alt-Delete. iProv was recently featured as the "Demo of the Month" in Future Music Magazine (Oct 2011) for his mainstream dance track, T.G.I.F.
What is Controllerism???? Well, since you asked ....
Controllerism is the art, performance and practice of using musical software controllers, e.g midi controllers, keyborads, drum pads, iPad etc., to build upon, mix, scratch, remix, effect, modify, or otherwise create music, usually by a Digital DJ or "controllerist".
