Here at AskAudio we tend to focus on the educational side of synthesis, occasionally delving into the performance side when something really noteworthy presents itself.
Well, this video of a man at a party playing a Ketron Vega 61-key workstaion keyboard on his head takes the crown for fun synth performance in our book.
This video was originally posted by שכונה back in Apri 2016 and has had over a million views... and we can see why. It's strangely addictive.
We challenge you not to watch this complete 2:40 synth on a man's head video:
Note: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME (unless your synth is insured)
If you like this video then you really are a synth head... get it? (sigh)
It took us a while to identify the keyboard the musician is playing. It turns out to be a Ketron VEGA 61-key Arranger Workstation Keyboard with Oriental Scaling. Unfortunately, it appears to no longer be available to buy from mainstream retail stores in UK or US. However, if you search eBay you'll find a few in existence.
Granted it's not a Korg, ARP, Moog, Roland, Yamaha or modular system... but it looks fun.
We've been told bookies are no longer taking bets on whether Behringer will clone it. (Sorry! Only joking... I couldn't resist).
