Beardyman recently demonstrated his technique at TED and provided a modicum of insight into the gear he utilizes. If you can get past the fact that this is basically an advertisement for DMG Audio and Beardyman the performance is at least entertaining.

The Artbreaker, although scheduled, isn’t going to be able to make it and the hard style beats he brings will be missed. But come out anyway and enjoy the show. The Aquarium 226 Broadway, Fargo,… Read more »
