.. i once saw Jaron Lanier do a great show at the knit/nyc, when he brought
a flowing, eclectic , unique sounding show to it's kness by wasting a LOT
of time trying to get some software to work; the sftwr was supposed to have
his woodwind notes trigger some 3D animation on a stageside monitor. hmmm..
basically it way crossed the line - he was getting very stressed out (not
fun to watch...) and it really wasn't needed - the crowd was loving what
was happening and the reaction of the crowd was palpable - "use the
computer, don't let it use you.."
