Jamie xx 'building an instrument’

Get your tech ready.

The xx are back with a new album, which is good because if we were still waiting we’d treat this news story as a needless delay rather than an amusing diversion. Anyway, Jamie Smith of the xx has told the Observer that he’s making a brand new musical instrument. He explained it’ll be see through (just don’t lose it), and music will be produced via finger touches and “colourful graphics.” Base components include an iPad (obviously) and an MPC sequencer. Well it might change music forever. Maybe not.
