    Today I learned what a "Tenorion" is thanks to Little Boots, a UK performer with a knack for synth sounds. I first came across her and this device when I caught a live recording from the famed Abbey Road studios on CBC back during the winter. At first I thought she was using some glowing touch-pad use to activate the beats, but after watching this video, it's clear it does much more than just set the tempo. Check it out:

    Frankly, I have no idea how on earth she keeps track of which unlabelled buttons do what. But there you go. Something to tide everyone over until Becks is back.
