okay, so your a band that midi sequences everything, what do you do for live performances?
ive actually considered letting something play and make a song during that, but what would i do for the meantime?
come out to redline hookah lounge on south first this thursday night and i'll show you :)
know about that from reverbnation, still cant come
Depends on how many people are in the band i spose. Some of my very favorite electronic bands are 2-3 people, sometimes with a devoted singer.
what to do? That's all up to you. I think in my ultimate electronic band I'd want to mid i instruments including a midi guitar and midi bass. Drums I'd prefer to have ribbon mics on the bottom heads of a real kit, so's to be able to mix in the electronic sounds over top a real kit.
Then on top of that band a person on the sideline doing the elctronic mashing of the various signals etc. Live elctronica is cool.
any time then...i'm down to sit down with you and help you figure out what may work best...i live on the south sidei'm also putting together a show it aces lounge on august 8th ableton workshops, vinyl swap meet, live pa battle, and performances...

eh? avidlife! havent seen you in a while.indeed, that kind of drumming would make me want to kill something too
Sphongle is crazy! its really just me though... ive been trying to fix that for a long time
@bosoncool man, ill check it out, i always regretted getting sonar instead of abelton
suppose its all show business
I always think that solo artists in particular have it hard. I assume that they just have a ton of lights and smoke and mirrors and play keyboard somewhere in the back of the stage. It's more of a sensory thing with electronic music anyhow, like people go for visuals as much as audio.
kinda what i figured, i probably just need more equipment anyways
I really wanna bridge that .. showman ship stuff that my rock background is, with the kinda visual smoke and mirrors trance thing that techno has....yeah...
boson!hit me up when you do man! You are always more than welcome up in the pacific northwest!:)

Heellz yeeahah! Just got done with the coda vid jah. Them boyz r monsterz!
ya know, that's one of the greatest parts about doing electronic music. we're not limited to having to have a specific lineup with specific instrumentation. it's pretty much anything goes live. since i starting making music in 95, i've performed using hardware sequencers (not recommended, heh), DAT tapes, MiniDisc players and multitracks, harddisc multitrack devices (one of my favorite), MP3 players, live sequencing from desktops and laptops, and various combinations thereof.
my live band has been as small as me playing guitar and singing with someone playing synths to as large as having a drummer, a second guitar player and 2 synth players. each version of my live band had its own unique sound and stage presence, which, imo, makes seeing my band perform live something that my fans will enjoy seeing time and time again as they never know what kind of performance they're gonna get.
you're only limited by your resources of technology and warm bodies and your imagination. if it's something you're working towards, PM me and i'll try to help you find a solution that works for you.
