1. EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE (TOSHIBA): Very important, for music sharing and backup. Everything safe with Mr Schwarzenegger taking care of it. 2. AMULET (NO BRAND): Black obsidian crystal and silver chain to speak only with the truth and repel bad vibes. 3. VAPORIZER (STORZ BICKEL, BUY HERE): Simply the best gadget i’ve ever bought. 4. MASCHINE MK2 (NATIVE INSTRUMENTS, BUY HERE): Just the perfect tool to get your ideas donde quicklyly, and beautiful designed :).  5. SUN GLASSES (SHWOOD, CHECK HERE): These are my favourite sunglasses ever, the wood finish gives them a nice tropical feel. 6. Vaporizer (PAX 1, CHECK HERE): Great and compact size for those times i need to clear my head while out of the house. It keeps me sane in the concrete jungle. Facebook  Soundcloud  Twitter  Website

1. CONTROLLER (LEAP MOTION, CHECK HERE): You can control mad parameters in 3D with your hand or bow a cello. 2. SNACK (SNACKIMALS, CHECK HERE): The modern evolution of animal crackers, Snackimals must be healthy because it’s sold in Whole Foods and other organic food retailers. 3. iPAD PRO + APP (POLYPLAYGROUND, GET HERE): The iPad Pro with my Polyplayground app. I really believe this is the best way to see and understand music.

1. PEN AND NOTE BOOK (MOLESKINE, BUY HERE ): I always have a pen and a notebook with me. First of all to keep alive my « to do list »… I am also afraid to forget « things » so I note everything… And for sure it is part of of my creative process to write notes & ideas on paper. 2. SUN GLASSES (MARSHALL EYEWEAR, BUY HERE ): Sunglasses!!! I have a huge collection. But those are my actual favorite. One video to sum this up is HERE. 3. POCKET KNIFE (DOUK DOUK, READ HERE): When I tour, I always need to cut things (cables, opening records…). It is part of my tech tools… This one is also special: Douk Douk was made last century and was used for lots of different situations… Good or bad 🙂 Facebook   Soundcloud   Twitter

FILE 24 // AVALON EMERSON

1. ISOLATOR (BOZURE, CHECK HERE ): My portable isolator, or that little box I travel around with and weird people out with various frequency amplifications and attenuations. 2. EARRINGS (NO BRAND): Earrings donning kokopelli silhouettes remind me no matter how far I travel, at heart I’m still a desert rat. 3. INCENSE (BASTET, CHECK HERE): “Bastet” incense, for channeling clear-minded creativity, lovingly and masterfully hand-blended by the eternal (and powerfully missed) Randy from Sword and Rose in Cole Valley, SF.

FILE 23 // PREQUEL TAPES

1. CRYSTALS (SODALITE, MORE INFO HERE ): I’m wearing my sodalite stone since years. I got it from my beautiful wife and I like for its meaning. It basically gives me super powers. 2. SPACE MAN STUDIO KEYS (LEGO, CHECK HERE): The little guy is from the same century as most of my Synths and drum machines. He is basically a gate opener to a huge playground. When my six year old son was introduced to the space man, he was as impressed and happy as I am when I am spending time with all of my machines. Spaceship. 3. SEQUENCER (MODEL 103 – ROLAND, CHECK THE FULL SYSTEM 100 HERE): I couldn’t fit the whole System 100 on the picture. The whole machine is a joy to use. It brings back sequencing to it most simple and maybe, from todays perspective, most unique way of sequencing. Patching the cables into the system, and sequencing two machines with that is a kind of meditation for me. It’s like cooking or going for a run, for my mind and body. Soundcloud   Facebook

1. NOTEPAD COVER (GHURKA, CHECK HERE ): Don’t remember when it was.. maybe >15 years ago? I saw a lady who had a very old and well-aged Ghurka leather notebook. Since then I decided to get my own when I get older. 2. LIPSTICK (NARS, CHECK HERE): Love the colour and the matte. Recently this is one of the most essential things for me when I have gigs. 3. GLASSES (AYAME, CHECK HERE): I’ve been loving glasses, but sadly most of European ones don’t suit my gigantic round Asian face..these are the first glasses I found for me!!

FILE 20 // EBONY BONES

1. WHISTLE (NO BRAND): I never go on tour with my collection of whistles. I have got them in various colors but the red one is probably my favorite now. 2. SHOES (DR MARTENS, BUY HERE): They are so comfortable. I always got a pair and I even wear them on stage. 3. COWBELL (NO BRAND): This is where it all started. My parents bought me a cowbell and a Fisher-Price guitar when I was little and as you can see, I still use one to this day in my songs. Soundcloud  Facebook  Website  Twitter
