I am once again using a relatively minimal setup (or as minimal as I can make it for a solo show). There is the iPad (and the iPhone), the MacBook with a monome, and the Evolver. I also have a couple of percussion instruments, and the dotara, an Indian string instrument.
Based on feedback from my last performance at the Omega Sound Fix, I am going to try and use fewer elements, particularly in the live sampling/looping section. I will start with the dotara, and layer the Magic Fiddle and guzheng model on top of it. I will be reusing some of the other elements that I have been having fun with, such as the Count Basie Big Band Remote from the Blue Note in Chicago controlled via the monome.
Luna wants to help out with preparations, too:
