Innovative but accessible. Conceptual but groovy - Alternative Controllers by Gustavo Bravetti is a unique experience.
Throw away your preconceptions of what you think a DJ does. Gustavo has many tricks up his proverbial sleeve, including multi pad surfaces, wireless sensors, VR gloves and LEDs to create a visual performance that complements and accentuates the music. Gustavo's performances are a multi-sensory feast for the ears and eyes of the hungry.
Gustavo's multi pad surfaces (electronic drums) are one of the most impressive parts of his live show. He uses the drums to play the percussion and melody parts of original compositions and classic electronic songs using all kinds of sounds from natural to electronic.
All these interactions are made live based on interactions with the crowd, thus ensuring that his live shows are always unique. His mix of styles (Minimal, Techno, TechHouse and Progressive House), the quality of his productions and the use of alternative controllers, make Gustavo's live music performance a spectacular show to be enjoyed by all!
