We've got a new album going out by a band called Vedette titled I Slept Moments For You. The album isn't out until the 15th of October, however, there's a track from the album on the Herb site just now. Here's some info about Vedette and the album.

HERB029 Vedette – I Slept Moments For You http://www.herbrecordings.com

Produced by jayrope

Release Date: 15th of October 2012

Vedette are;
Manuel Stagars (keyboards, tape loops, sampling, flutes, whistles, kalimba, glockenspiel. jayrope (Laserdave, electric piano, acoustic baritone guitar, vocals, programming) & Neil Carlill (vocals, lyrics).
Vedette's highly anticipated 2nd album I Slept Moments For You is a wonderfully abstract and psychedelic voyage that will challenge as well as delight those fortunate enough to encounter it. Carlill's intoxicatingly surreal poetry is perfectly complimented by some deftly supreme abstract electronic wizardry and engaging musical arrangements that envelops then transports you to another world.
Vedette have a wealth of experience behind them. Neil Carlill had top 40 chart success in the UK with his bands Delicatessen and then Lodger, he later went on to collaborate with Warren Cuccurullo (Frank Zappa, Duran Duran) and has also been involved with various other projects including Me Me The Moth, Shoosh and Harvey Mapcase. Manual Stagars is an accomplished composer for film and television (see IMDb entry here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1046867/) who has also had chart success as both an artist and producer in Europe and the latest addition to Vedette, jayrope, has been an ever-present figure in Germany's experimental music scene for a number of years, most recently with his Air Cushion Finish project.

I Slept Moments For You will be released through Herb Recordings on the 15th of October, 2012.

I don't actually know! I think it's something Janek (jayrope) made himself though. I'll find out and report back :mrgreen:

"Laserdave is a fiction character, and a Wii-mote driven looping and sounddesign application i have written myself in MaxMSP. :)
See more about the fiction character on laserdave.com. It's purely non distributed work in progress site though, mostly for the purpose of poetically playing with Vedette stage setups (when lots of budget is there)"
