..........in a comatheatre concert ("The Lorca Project") presented this
weekend in Dallas, I'll be using a boomerang and jambooty to capture bits
of live and recorded music (including prerecorded looped material), sound
effects, live and recorded wordplay, etc. coming at me from 3
sources. My personal station also includes DAT tapes, CDs and processed
acoustic sources (talking drum, occarina, melodica, etc.)...all of which
be looped for beds or lingering melodies.
This complex sound environment supports dance, video and
involving the loopers is planned...my success will be based on experience
reflexes that, with luck, will result in split-second timing that will
like a tightly controled performance.
That attitude spreads to the rest of the performance. We have rehearsed
events that will become tools, like the loopers, to be added and
the "need" arises and, again, to the audience, place everything else
or circumstantial) in meaningful relief. Beyond that, an opening and
give an exacting form to what is usually a totally free performance ethic.
Tools and toys...live or studio...fun fun fun.
