The "Robo Tooth" video is totally homemade, lo-fi, using various toys from my childhood in the 1970's and 80's, including some of my favourite cars, a Twiki action figure and a Highland Bull doll that my Aunt got from her trip to Scotland. I also shined a red laser pointer on some magnetic "Bucky Balls", and put my red sunglasses over the camera while videotaping the trees and the sky.

created using a cheap camera, Virtualdub and Zwei-Stein v3.01


There's something magical about simplicity. Lex Plexus has stepped away from the computer and returned to roots with "Robo Tooth". The good old hands-on methods of hardware sequencing and sampling have been all dusted off and brought back into action. Comparisons to Kraftwerk and Orbital are inevitable, or the old classics "Rock It" by Herbie Hancock and "Axel F" by Harold Faltermeyer. All the samples are original, made mostly of guitars and bass combined with a TR-505 drum machine and the Korg Wavestation synthesizer (the same kind used by Jan Hammer to make the "Miami Vice" theme song!!!). "Robo Tooth" sounds all at once robotic, heavy metal, and totally 80's.
