LG played a gig in Nottingham last night, at Lee Rosy’s Tea emporium, home of the wonderful Church of Sound events curated by Jez Creek. Listening back to the audio, as ever, I realise that it was probably more successful than I thought at the time – when you’re “in the moment”, juggling patches, loops & FX, it’s hard to be objective! We need to work on endings as well 😉
Here’s some photos from Anthony Bloxham (the pro ones!) and Jez.
You have a limited range of colours assignable to each controller, but if you set them up in banks of 2, you can then tell ableton to use matching colours for a set of macro controls. I find this really helps me remember what controls what when using several user banks.
Every two years or so, our friend Chris Meloche pays a visit to Blighty. He stays with my brother and we try to organise live work for him. This year, we played a gig at Notes & Sounds / Over The Top in Nether Edge, plus a private show at my brother’s house. Here is a video & are some shots (mostly by Jan Todd) of the OTT show, where the line-up was:
Despite a relatively large line-up, considerable restraint was on show, although probably not enough for Chris’ minimalist tastes!
