Re: The Curse of Knob-Twiddling
Getting some talented live dancers who know your music is a real eye
catcher. Start building a light show. Build it with MIDI control and
it to video. The Tent could be an elaborate cloth backdrop. You could
8 or 16 mm film loops on it or a slides. Just some brainstorms...
I think you could easily do better than Aphex Twin who just sits on a
with his lap top and brings on a bunch of lame dancing Bears (he obviously
never watched the real "Dancing Bear" on Captain Kangaroo), Yawn.
As for offending anyone, I guess that depends on how you present yourself
and who you are playing to. People are bored, be exciting.
