In my mindless, never ending quest to delve deep into the technical realms of "Ambient music", I've got yet another question or two for the folks who play/compose their craft. Question 1. - if you are a performer who takes his "show" out to the public, does your "live rig" differ from your studio rig greatly? 2a. - Are your "live" performances more or less as important compositionally (is this a word?) as your studio work? - or is your studio work done in a "one shot" sort of way as a public performance? -2b. Is "studio" work of any greater or lesser value or simply another method? 2c. - Do you do extensive editing or let the piece live as done? 3a. - Do you have a preference of "hardware" (many synths, modifiers, etc.) or software (synths, modifiers. etc...) 3b. - Is a "live" public performance inhibited or expanded by the use of software? 3c - Are you wary of using computers in a "live" setting?
No fair just saying, "it depends..." that's too easy...
Later on I will open a section for performance "horror stories"... always fun to share those mortifying experiences. If I had a nickle for every time something went wrong and I thought, "This would be really funny if it weren't happening to me..." Well, I'd have the BIG house on the hill.
