J.Viewz Plays “Teardrop” with Vegetables

J.Viewz - a creative tune

Jonathan Dagan, known by his stage name J.Viewz, is a Brooklyn-based songwriter, producer and visual artist. In his latest video, he performs an electronic version of Massive Attack’s “Teardrop” using some mushrooms, eggplants, carrots, grapes, strawberries and kiwis. The key to the whole thing is “Makey Makey” – a circuit board created by MIT graduate students Jay Silver and Eric Rosenbaum that lets vegetables take the place of keyboard keys. Jonathan explains that all sounds were generated live, but the actual samples that were triggered were pre-made. The result is just captivating and beautiful.
