Satellite event: Captain Credible micro:bit Orchestra
Captain Credible plays an opening concert for the commissioned installation: micro:bit orchestra at the Northern Museum of Science "Nordnorsk Vitensenter"
The installation is comprised of many wireless wall mounted and portable panels and robotic contraptions each playing their own instruments ranging from xylophones, synthesizers, and drum kits to kitchen utensils, hacked answering machines and diy electronic circuits. Along with a plethora of musical robots built by music school students at the preceding workshop.
Using his trademark blinking tetrahedron instruments along with wireless transmitters and various hacked musical helmets, Captain Credible will perform a selection of works written and arranged for the installation.

Captain Credible is the crazy-scientist project of Daniel Eugene Lacey-McDermott. A curious artist who emerged from Trondheim in
2008 and has been terrorizing audiences all over Europe ever since. Resurrected as a meta musical presence in a not-so-easily
defined genre, he claims Aphex Twin, Sex Pistols and Aaron Carter have helped him form his own image. The Captain refers to his
sounds as “filthy drunk beats bathing in a lake of melting synthesizers and old Nintendo cartridges”.
On a stage filled with home made electronics and songs about dead cats and pure code the Captain regales his listeners with epic
adventures through time and space. With jaw dropping performances at festivals like Øya, Hove, by:Larm, Slottsfjell, Ragnarock
(Milan), Pictoplasma (Berlin) as well as support tours for Casiokids, The Show Is The Rainbow and Slagsmålsklubben he might be
considered underground, but is making waves in his own right. His debut EP 'Planet of the Eternal Electro Breakdance Orgy' was
released on the small but credible Norwegian label How Is Annie Records (Youth Pictures, The Little Hands of Asphalt) and his
second EP “Mountain Cloudboy” gained notoriety online.
June 2016 marks the release of the second EP in a series of three printed circuit boards on the Metronomicon Audio label. This EP
“Fantasy Mansion” Is unique in that the physical printed circuitboard is responsible for generating part of the music on the EP.
Each time you plug in your headphone jack, a new song is generated by the microcontroller on the circuitboard using a bunch of
complex 8bit maths equations and your “perlington demon radiation signature”. Simply plug in your headphones and a small
“perlington demon gate” harvests compositions fhom the ether. This time the circuit board includes the ability to be played as a
musical instrument and 32step 4 voice sequencer with drums. It even syncs to external gear!
