White Cat Affection and Keyboard

Beautiful black-and-white photo of a white cat giving affection to a sibling next to a white keyboard. An exercise is both contrast and sweetness.

The Kiffness X Numnum Cat

This was fun. The Kiffness (aka David Scott) performs trumpet and electronics along with a rhythmic cat. Via the Kiffness’ Facebook page.

David Scott, also known by his stagename as The Kiffness, is a South African musician, producer and parody artist who is the founder and lead singer for the band, The Kiffness. Despite the name of the band, Scott is referred to as The Kiffness alone.

It looks like he features “collaborations” with cats quite often, so I suspect he will be back on CatSynth again soon.

Dali: That Fader is Mine

The subject line says it all! Dali (the cat) clearly has a keen interest in that horizontal fader and surrounding controls.

Got a studio visit today from Valentino

We think he looks a bit like a young Big Merp 😺

Eurorack Improvisation with Cat

Very calming and captivating. The cat things so, too.

Watch all the way through to see the cat get scritches.

Napping on a Polyend Tracker

Cat napping on a Polyend Tracker

A sweet moment with a cat napping on a Polyend Tracker. From legowelt_official on Instagram.

The Polyend Tracker is getting quite a bit of attention recently. It is perhaps nostalgia for the “trackers” of the 1990s, with the text-based grid sequencer, but also many modern additions. I could see it being integrated with a MIDI+Eurorack setup (along with cats, of course).
