Legally blind until age seven when he got his first pair of glasses, Mothersbaugh started fashioning his own version of the world at the outset and has not stopped. Though best known as frontman for Devo (of “Whip It” fame), collaborating with filmmaker Wes Anderson, and building soundtracks for children’s shows like Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, Yo Gabba Gabba! and Rugrats, Mothersbaugh is first and foremost a visual artist.

We are big fans of the mind of Mark Mothersbaugh. From Rugrats to Life Aquatic, and aside from co-founding Devo, the man has composed an absolutely insane amount of music for tv shows and movies and along the way created all kinds of art. In this video for an event at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Mothersbaugh talks about his 3am work habits, gives some sagely advice on technology and art, and rocks out with the weirdest presets on an organ. A nice little watch for sure.
