RE: Dangerous (learning) curves (was Fast & Trashy, Slow and Chaste)

From: Paolo Valladolid [mailto:paolovalladolid@yahoo.com] 

I have enough gear to perform, but what to do with it is the problem.
One of the performers at the Red Room on my first visit was Hans Tammen.
He uses a MIDI guitar to communicate with a Max/MSP patch running on his
laptop - pretty much the same thing I was going to do.  On top of that,
he's so much more skilled at it ;), both with respect to guitar chops
and computer/Max/MSP chops.

To be "skilled" in using a certain performer set-up does not have to
mean the same thing as "creating something interesting". Quite often the
audience experience performances different than the performer things
