Radio Gig This Evening

One of my favorite performance options is working with Gregory Taylor and Tom Hamer as a three-piece all-improv electro-acoustic group. Everyone spends more time listening than playing, which is always a refreshing way to spend the evening. You'll be able to stream the show live at WORT, or catch an archive after the fact. I'll be rocking the portable cab this evening, and also will be using a modded Korg Poly 800 that I picked up at a yard sale for $50. Should be great, and I hope you'll listen in.

If you weren't there, I hope you can follow some of it. But it is a pretty cool workshop! Also, Sparkfun is rocking it right now, so people are going to come out of this with Brains Full Of Stuff.

Visuals Gig Prep for July 13, 2012

Working today and tomorrow, then I'm off for gig-prep for July 13's performance at the MediaLive festival. I'm doing visuals for Janet Feder and Andrew Pask, and just finished up the performance patch last night. The above is a capture from a basic run-through test.

I was struggling with some transitions, and realized I just had things in the wrong order. As soon as I corrected that, it all seemed to come into focus. Now I have to work on the equipment setup, do some run-throughs, and I should be read for the show.

My visuals for this one will mostly be generative, with only a few of the live-camera-to-gloopy-projection bits that I'm typically known for. Nevertheless, it still pretty much has my signature to it...
