Little Boots – Ready For The Fun – Hot Chip Tenorion Cover

Via

What is a Tenorion?

The Tenori-on is an electronic musical instrument designed and created by the Japanese artist Toshio Iwai and Yu Nishibori of the Music and Human Interface Group at the Yamaha Center for Advanced Sound Technology. It consists of a hand-held screen in which a sixteen-by-sixteen grid of LED switches are held within a magnesium plastic frame. Any of these switches may be activated in a number of different ways to create sounds. Two built-in speakers are located on the top of frame, as well as a dial and buttons that control the type of sound and beats per minute produced.

  1. That’s a pretty cool piece of kit you have there, playstation age eh! I loved the 6 music sessions with Gary Numan, you’re a breath of fresh air girl, looking forward to your next cd. Fair play to you for putting this stuff on you tube, shame there are a few idiots who leave nasty comments, I hope you ignore them.
    Keep on doing what you do, you’re great!

  2. Princesa!!! Tienes algo especial, además de la capacidad de crear (componer), cantar y sobre ello, compartirlo con los que disfrutamos de tí.

    En México tienes un fiel seguidor.

    Viva Little Boots! xD

  3. These were under £500 when they first got released, There over £800. Yamaha are taking the mickey with the exchange rate…bit shameless really. I guess they did so they could sell the cheaper version for £500 which is stil alot for what at the end of the day is a groovebox with a grid seq.

    Anyhoo. I loved this video you have a great voice and loved the programming.
    Thankyou

  4. I think I enjoy these simple videos with Little Boots singing in her bedroom more than the big, special effects productions. They just seem so much more honest. She really does love the music, and it comes through very clearly.

  6. @miguelonsv Yeh, I know what you mean, Little Boots is just so gorgeous. She is really concentrating hard on this song with the tenorion and that bit at 4:16 looked tricky but she gives that ‚I’ve done it ‚ look. First found this by accident months ago but I keep coming back to it!

  7. Thumbs up if You, like Me, think Littleboots‘ cover sounds way better and looks more original & appealing than the original itself.
    Her version seems to have more soul in it, simply said.

    -Also, pretty good use of the Tenori-On! =)

  8. I know its less probable that you ll read this. but if yes you should know that this is the most amazing and creative sound i heard. I like electronic sounds and this one shoots me up. i listented to your hands album on amazon and that was the most incredable shit i ever heard. truely not erverthing.. „ghost and meddle“ stands out but the rest is poor dance/pop shit. If the album sounds as your private style then it´s nothing else more as a thrown away soul more in the world. sry not motherlang

  9. Love this. I’ve watched it so many times. I just got my tenori-on two days ago, and came back again to see how it was done. Gotta say, it’s not difficult to get the beat and the basic patterns going, but it takes a lot to handle the different „blocks“ and keep it all together with the singing. I’m still not sure how she’s doing a lot of it – for example, the basic pattern is transposed up and down, but the top „ping-pong“ (on beats 8 and 1) stays in the same key. Brilliant handling of it!

  10. suppoe a tenorian makes a change playing for young ladies in their bedroom lonely rather than a big dildo bought on ebay?

    Love Little Boots. I would.

  12. said this years ago, like the bare feet percussion at 4:30 , on a concrete/tiled/wood floor of Victoria’s bedroom/studio.

    How you doing Vicky? Come down to see me in Wales if you want to get somewhere different, come and see Uncle Thomas, I maybe fifty, but I can make things mind right, get the compass reset, in just a normal and simple way, with walks and talks, that is all. Nothing else.

  14. Walks and talks, simpley passing sceanery, all has some sort of history, if you look close enough, as I always do. Cliff edges and upland lakes, all the same to me. Old horse tramlines the same, taking minerals down to sea, to be shipped, all same to me.

    Song for Vicky,
    watch?v=T31onKUj-xc

    Bella? La Luna? no only joking. Just posted for amusement for you Vicky, something different, Gigilola e Rita Pavone, e that bloke too, who I can not ever remember his name, for some reason…

  18. Hello Everybody
    Everyone has had a goal in their life, whatever age they are
    I love singing since I was a little girl and it became my biggest passion
    When you have a dream no matter what, you fight for it
    I want to become professional at the things I love doing such as singing
    Maybe I’m just a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
    Some people are trying to put me down but I keep my head up and keep doing what I love to do
    Please give me 1 chance, how? Watching my videos on my YouTube channel
    Thanks
