Paris Hilton Plays ROLI Seaboard & Blocks: Most Painful Video You'll Watch Today

It seems like everything musical Paris Hilton puts her hand to doesn’t quite turn out right. Videos of her DJing have gone viral for all the wrong reasons. They often demonstrate her doing virtually nothing of note, or worse pressing buttons, tweaking knobs and faders that are having no effect on the sound at all.

And now there’s this. We suspect ROLI are keen not to promote this video of Paris Hilton playing (murdering?) the ROLI Seaboard RISE and Blocks. Yikes. Be warned this is truly a painful experience.

Paris writes: “I love my new RISE,” and continues to demystify what is actually happening in the video: “Making new tracks on my ROLI Seaboard RISE”. Thanks for explaining that one!

Please bear in mind, the ROLI Seaboard RISE is actually a very musical and capable controller/instrument. Just not demonstrated in the video above. While we don’t expect Hilton to be as skilful a player as Jordan Rudess, it would be nice if she could make sounds that aren’t awful.

You can stop watching after one minute if you’re only interested in her synth performance. The rest appears to be a compilation of her other snapchat videos.

Oh, and you might be interested in Blocks which we reviewed here.
