Lock yourself into the beat, but don't become prisoner to it. The techno pioneer Jeff Mills understands that only too well. 'Not being tied to other musicians when using a drum machine and electronics live can be a liberating experience', he explains. 'Because we aren't strapped together by some master tempo clock, I'm able to play my instruments and speak with the machine, not just program a pattern and press play. It was important to have devised this technique so that I could meet Tony creatively. We each do our thing, but we can do it together'.
