live shows

I went to a show last night to see electronic music, downtown. It was fun at least, although not very exciting. The first guy, Chris Tenz, (who will be joining me when I do my first show apparently) played his guitar a bit and midi controller the rest. He actually played, and the music was really nice. The second guy, however, just sort of sat down at the front and clicked around on his laptop. He looked bored and didn't really do anything at all. He might as well of just played a completely pre-recorded set. The music was really fun though, just the guy was boring.

So I have decided, live electronic music is pretty boring generally speaking, at least visually. For my first set, I want to use my paia fatman with a midi controller and perhaps try out my upright bass. If we use backing tracks for most of it, Chris on midi keyboard playing one track, me on the paia fatman for another, maybe it will be somewhat interesting. Also, for a couple tracks I think I should like to mic my upright bass, play it with the bow, and put the audio into jeskola buzz on a laptop for fun delay and other effects. That might sound good, maybe. I have never tried that, it is just a plan
