Quote from: 9dragons on June 05, 2010, 12:55:36 PM. I know that the drum sounds are not 'real', I don't need to see someone slapping a drum to experience the emotion of the sound that's created. Imagine a concert like Steve Roach played in Grace Cathedral. That must have been awesome, the space alone was a contributor to the show...
Quote from: ffcal on June 05, 2010, 12:59:13 PMAs for why I prefer not to perform live, it feels about as unnatural as painting in public. You could do it, but why would you want to?
Quote from: LNerell on June 05, 2010, 07:38:39 PMSorry to hear you feel that way Forest as I thought your performance at The COMA day of music festival back in the early 1990s was the high light of the weekend. I enjoyed it very much even though you were ten feet above everyone on top of the kitchen at System M, best use of kitchen utensils all weekend. ;D
Quote from: drone on on June 06, 2010, 04:03:43 AMI've seen plenty of rock gigs in my life where four people were strumming, plucking, and banging away and it was about as interesting as watching paint dry. A successful live performance occurs when the music is good and you're diggin' it. Doesn't matter to me whether someone's sitting behind a bank of electronics or a drumkit, if what they're doing sounds good and there is an emotional connection to it, it's going to be enjoyable.
Quote from: ffcal on June 06, 2010, 11:54:23 AMLoren,Can't believe you were at that show--too bad we did meet then. I remember very little of it, other than it was put together on fairly short notice, when one of the COMA festival's organizers, Titus Levi, asked me if I had a group that could perform there. I remember putting together an improv group (called 'The Mandelbrot Trio') with members of the band Doll Parts (Rick Corrigan, Lynn Ablondi) and maybe rehearsing maybe once or twice before we did the show. I also remember that we had to play while sitting on the floor of an elevated platform, and that I at one point was playing my palm harp while holding down some of the keys of my DSS-1 with my toes! At least that performance was fun, and came with no expectations.
Quote from: MarkM on June 08, 2010, 08:15:42 PM there was an opening act that featured a fellow sitting next to his laptop smoking cigarettes as his Reason sequence played unaided. I think that was pushing live performance envelope a bit too far.

Quote from: vidnaObmana on June 11, 2010, 03:54:26 AMSomehow I never valued John Diliberto's views, opinions and work on Echoes as important or vital. For me it has an elite, wise-guy mentality that didn't stroke with my vision at the time and it still does.His unfounded thoughts on how music needs to be performed is another proof on how he values and looks at music from his state of mind....
