Going to noise shows one can hear a lot of ignorant talk about gear but one of my favorites was when someone wanted to get a "drone sequencer".

Makes me think I should start making some "drone sequencers" since there is obviously demand for them.

Bit of back story to mine.

When I started uni and was in halls of residence, a couple of guys that hung out at the girls flat next to mine knocked on the door and said 'hey man, check it out' and pointed down. He then proceeded to rub his small penis on the door handle to our flat and run off. I had two options, knock him out or tell security. Being that it was within the first month or so and I didn't really want any major trouble with anyone, I opted for the latter and he got a bollocking (no pun intended). One of the security guys was also a technician for the music tech department who I ended up getting on really well with due to him being a massive techno head and just a generally sound guy, but this strange circumstance was the first time i'd met him.

Anyway, fast forward two years and i'm playing at an experimental electronica festival one of my lecturers put on in the club based at uni. My MIDI controller kinda had a freak out and stopped the audio completely. As this brief moment of silence happened I heard 'and then he got his dick out and rubbed it on the door' fairly loudly. Turned out that technician was telling his brother about how he'd first met me, I didn't hear exactly what he'd said, I thought someone had just shouted 'Dick' at me because of the audio dropout so he explained it all afterwards as apparently I shot the audience an angry glare! Pretty funny looking back on it lol

When I was about 15 I was playing bass in a bad punk band. My dad said "You know what you guys need, something to set you apart. I think you should have a keyboardist" I said "Ehhh.. Keyboards are lame." (hides)

I used to play in a hardcore band playing keys. More than a few people said "John plays the moog", I played a Roland Jx-305... I got tired of correcting people so I just let them say it.

I've had more than a few funny and ignorant comments, here are a few:

After playing a live set: "Hey man, nice DJ set"
While playing a live set: "Hey DJ, can you play some dubstep?" and "Can you play some Lenard Skynard?"

But this is the best comment i've ever gotten...
after playing a live set: "That was better than any sex i've ever had!"

applause

I was playing a show at SOMA in San Diego in '95. Just my K2000, a TR-707 and my DJ friend was layering beats over my stuff. In the middle of it a guy came on stage and stood next to me and says," You like Moby?" I said,"sure" and asked him to leave the stage. I am pretty sure he was tripping balls.

I used to play around Seattle in the late 70's and 80's in different ensembles one being a solo gig. I was playing at a club called The Vogue as the solo act which was a electron sound that today would be called Ambient - a cinematic soundscape sort of a thing with lots of found-sound tape loops and slow drone/sequencer work. There was no stage per se (it was a dance club) so I was setup on the dance floor. A gent came up to me and asked "When are you gonna start?" I replied "I did about 10 minutes ago." I guess he expected to hear pop music ad thought the audio was a pre-gig soundtrack. I didn't know wether to be proud that he didn't figure out that it was live, or pissed that he didn't figure out that it was live.

After a gig, a guy came up to me and told it was 'the most extreme thing he had ever heard' and that his girlfriend had hated it and dumped him as a result of him taking her there.

Did an all-modular show supporting Honda's ASIMO robot a few years ago (see pic)

A woman came up afterwards and asked "so, you're controlling the robot with all these cables, right?"
