Here's a live performance trio video

Post by Soy Sos » Thu Jun 09, 2011 9:35 am

This is my first performance with 2 friends Dave Bernabo and Jeff Berman.
There's a little scrambling on my part to set up the patch for that piece,
but I think I got it together pretty quick. I did 4 patches over the course
of our 40 minute set.

:yay: excellent performance - i particularly liked the vibe playing !

are you processing any of the accoustic instrument sound in your patch, btw?

it seems like with this stage setup you would be in a pretty good position to mix delay/reverb/distortion effects for the accoustic instuments, in addition to providing modular synth textures.

cheers,

Hey! You know Dave Bernabo!
Dave helped a group of mine get a gig in Pittsburgh a year or 2 back. Super nice guy and it is always good to see him play.

If I could provide some constructive criticism at least from this clip I would say turn up your synth a little. I know when I play with acoustic performers I always error on the side of quiet as well.

Thanks folks
@numan7 - Not processing guitar or vibes yet. Jeff has a pickup system on the vibes but I want to work my way slowly into that and not get the setup too complex. I just want to enjoy playing at this point.

@Hi5 - Yeah, that setting was fairly chill. I had my own powered monitor and I was in the PA , but I asked them to keep me mellow in the mix. I'm easing into this trio situation and I want to play a more textural role. We sort of had the synth step out front at the end though. And yes, super nice guy is a good way to describe Dave Bernabo. Another way is super talented!

I've been performing out a lot with this system and I'm getting ready to rethink how to set up my case.

Exactly! When I first got my modular together playing out quickly changed how I thought about what was useful or not. Now, the first question in my mind when looking at new gear is "how will this integrate live?"

I really should take videos of my jams and put them up here. On tues I played with Jeb Bishop(trombone), Jason Roebke(bass), and Paal Nilssen-Love(drums) and it got pretty loud a raucous. My worry always is the poor audio quality on my camera. I guess for short clips on the internet it is fine.

I need to get out of the house more. The video looks great. I would love to see the entire set.

Thanks for posting, that is a mighty fine clip! Agree with Hi5 about your place in the mix...I totally understand wanting to ease in to the new setting, but I thought the part near the end where the synth came out more was awesome.

Yes, you should!
