Being a professional partyer requires some equipment to get the party started. From hardward to software, Andrew provides details to The Setup about everything he uses to do what he does best. He also talks about his love for inorganic and synthetic sounds and recording through computers. Enjoy an excerpt below!
Who are you, and what do you do?
My name is Andrew W.K. and I am a professional partyer.
What hardware do you use?
I have a variety of things – of course, the main instrument I play is piano and keyboard. I own a Steinway Concert D piano, which is currently in Ohio being taken care of by a very wonderful musician and piano player named Baby Dee. And then I have a Roland MP-60 – which is similar to the EP-9 which I had for years – and it’s an electronic piano-style keyboard that’s really good as a MIDI controller, especially with other Roland modules. I’ve used this keyboard and various keyboards much like it (specifically Roland) for the last 13 years, since I started recording the first Andrew W.K. music.
