check out this dj, and find the analogy with ableton live (although i'd really like to know what this guy is using for live looping
i do solo loop based electronic stuff, play guitar, trumpet and keys in a traditional band setup (yep, the oldfashioned 'one part each, or maybe two on rare occasions) i like them both equally... and do not really care what people who don't know what electronic music making is about, think about it.
anyway... what do you do as a band when you wanna hit the stage? right, you rehearse until all is fine, then you get on stage and do exactly what you've been doing the last six months in the garden shed. rarely i have heard good rock concerts that had a decent amount of jamming/improvising in the show.
btw: saw mogwai, featured in the artist section, last week... awesome concert. one of my favourite bands at the moment. didn't see the guy touch his iBook though, not even once.
do YOU enjoy yourself? great! (if played live) did the crowd have a good time? even better...
does anyone know 'Oh no the modulator'? great underground electronics... live he theatrically pushes whatever he pushes to start the sequencer/player, backs off of his laptop and does nothing except some lunie dancing... how's that for a statement? funny, but somehow i felt a bit uncomfortable as an electronic musician
