Well, the crowd went wild as the artist turned the knobs, spun the reels and blasted his insane beats out of the speakers after a (quoth Radboud Mens) “almost Gothic” intro. Seriously, it was fun! I was the headliner (meaning I was the last in the line up, because the others wanted to get drunk asap and I don’t drink (much)) and got a lot of shoulder bashing afterwards. So I guess I must have been doing something right.
The set (20 minutes) went well enough for the audience not to notice that in both occasions my connection of Audiomulch with the midi controller Behringer BCR2000 was broken and I had to resort to mouse scratching. What can you do? The show must go on, right? Anyway, the use of a real reel to reel deck was a huge success. The younger guests stared at a dinosaur, whereas the old geezers stood there mesmerized and thinking about the olden days.
Other performers were: Kapotte Muziek, Radboud Mens (really nice setup!), Asmus Tietchens, Howard Stelzer. I’m sure some photo’s will pop up in the next few weeks. And: everything has been taped and will be released somehow (edited) in the near future by Korm Plastics.
EDIT: [ here’s ] an mp3 of the Extrapool concert
Today it was also made official that I will do a performance in Maastricht at March 20. I will give more info when it arrives.
