Madonna plays Swedish
You may have heard that Madonna used Swedish producers for her latest videos.
But now she also uses Swedish instruments in her shows! On the MTV Europe
Music Awards show in the Stockholm Globe Arena on November 16, her band
performed on instruments made by Clavia DMI.
Instead of using acoustic drums, her drummer and programmer Steve Sidelnyk
played on ddrum4 electronic drums. On keyboards Madonna's current producer
Mirwais Ahmadzai and musical director Michael Beardon played on Nord Lead
2s, a synthesizer also developed and produced by Clavia DMI. Nord Lead
2 is a digital synthesizer that emulates analog synthesis using a technology
called 'virtual analog'. The first Nord Lead model was released in 1995
and has already become a classic in professional music studios and among
Madonna, who was currently on a promotion tour in Europe for her latest
album "Music", will perform on several TV shows like "Wetten dass" in Germany
or UK-program "Top of the Pops".
