Baltitronic @ Palomas, 7/21/2006

Played a monthly event called Baltitronic at a place called Palomas in Baltimore.

I used my new midi controller, which performed ably. The visuals were cool, being done by one VJ Umbris ("shadow"-- ha ,i like that): two projectors and two laptops, DV camera picking up stage action which was effected/mixed in with computer generated visuals, many of them 3D.

Kind of tired tonight so I won't do a long writeup-- I had a good time, there were people there I knew, and my set was well received. Did a 160bpm jam, with a hard dry kick on the quarter notes, loops for main drums xfaded with microtonic and impulse for incidental perc throughout, livecut and beatrepeat on the drums: exercised as many notes on the Guitron as melodically as I could, those fed into Live and split to a nice guitar patch on the Sytrus VST for the melody and through chord generator, velocity, arpeggiator and scale for the underlayment: basically lashed it out.

what i am not...

I'm not as young as I used to be.
I'm not a hater.
I'm not contented or happy, but have been happy now and then, but..
I'm not morose or bitter, either, but have been from time to time, and...
I'm pretty sure I'm not Neurotypical
I'm not a rabid sports fan, but I enjoy watching sports.
I'm not negative, even though all these sentences start with "I'm not".
I'm not running a hugely popular blog, but I'm also not bummed that my blog is not hugely popular, because...
I'm not really that big on blogging, the 'blogosphere', blog wars, blog stars, the blahblahblahnessofblogging, although I do enjoy and read them fairly often.
I'm not particularly energetic, but I do have some intense bursts now and again.
I'm not easily impressed, but I am generally non-critical.
Can't say I'm totally down with Hyperrealism but I think it's a good label for some of the things I'm involved with.
