Magic Pockets: In Short Scenes, Live Music Construction With An Obscene Amount of Gear

Gear hoarding is similar to drug addiction for electronic music enthusiasts, and it affects everyone.  Fortunately, most of us do not have deep enough pockets to satisfy our craving for more and more gear to stick in a tiny room.  Also, there are few artists who actually use more than just a handful of equipment to produce what they need in a live show.

This is not true for Magic Pockets.  In his Rusty’s Revenge video he creates his own music using an obscene amount of gear that surrounds him like a surgeon with operating tools.  His set is live and organic, so he’s not afraid to accept that he’ll probably make some mistakes along the way.
