Joel Zimmerman- more affectionately known as Deadmau5- is currently preparing to play the closing set of the famed Toronto club, The Guvernment, on January 25th. To give the club a worthy send off, Deadmau5 has announced previously that he will be doing some special remakes of classics, as well as a seemingly impossible 20-minute live version of “Strobe.”
In between remaking classics and interacting with fans via a reddit AMA, Deadmau5 decided to live-stream himself building a modular synth from scratch. The two videos below are archived on Twitch where you can watch the mau5 and his handiwork. It seems rare that an artist would go to such lengths to build things for his studio, or even for fun, but, thats what we love about Joel.
We are all eager to see what he brings to the closing set of The Guvernment as it is sure to be extra-special. This kicks off a huge 2015 where Deadmau5 is set to hit the road with a new live tour. Look for more news regarding the tour and any further twitch streams where Deadmau5 is known to play a little Diablo as well.
