Kanye West plays ‘Stronger’ at the Grammys with Surprise Appearance by Daft Punk Playing JazzMutant Lemurs

(Daft Punk’s official post-Grammy press photo from http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2008/02/daft_punk_serio.html)

I just finished watching the 50th Annual Grammy awards. One of the highlights for me was Kanye West’s performance of ‘Stronger’ with special guest appearance by Daft Punk. According to First for Music News, “This was the French duo’s first-ever television appearance in their 14-year history.”

What were those fantastic touch-screen controllers they were using? Well they were JazzMutant Lemur’s and they were being used to trigger samples and synths. If you want to learn more about how Daft Punk uses Ableton Live to maniluplate samples and produce music checkout this interview with Thomas Bangalter.

Learn more about the Lemur at  http://www.jazzmutant.com/, but be prepared for sticker shock as the Lemur goes for about $3,300 US.
