Deadmau5 plays mostly his own material, assembling tracks on the fly, using cutting edge computer technology, including software he’s helped write himself. “There are no CDs involved,” he explains. “It’s a technological orgy up there and I try and keep it more my music than anyone else’s. If people come out to see deadmau5, I want them to hear deadmau5 music.” Named after his cat Professor Meowingtons, deadmau5’s Meowingtons Hax show features incredible production—a menagerie of lights and LED (check out a clip from Lolla HERE)
