a community supporting ambient music, art, poetry, photography, games and more
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.
