Native Instrumentsがバンドをプロデュース?NIのデモンストレーションビデオで馴染みのあるミュージシャン5人がバンドMostly Robotを結成。現在行われているスペインバルセロナでの有名なミュージックフェスティバルSónarで初お披露目がおこなわれるというニュースが数ヶ月前にあり、NIファンとしては大変気になっていました。バンドメンバーは全員が個性的テクニシャン、MIDIクロックを使わないというテーマで、5人がNIの製品をふんだんに使う音楽はどのようなものだったのでしょうか。

YouTubeにもビデオが何本かアップされてました。音質がよくないのでくわしくは分かりませんが、Jamie Lidellの歌声が一番高価な楽器だということはよーく分かります(苦)。やはり生で見たかったですね。
