Hidden Village at Earpoke 4 (ACMC06 offsite show)

As part of last friday's final ACMC06 offsite concert, called Earpoke, Lauren and I played a set. We played three pieces: a piece for water surface and nanoloop 2.0.1, a phasing piece for two gameboys and black dog white dog for vectrex running logo and apparently two atari 2600s running synthcart. I say apparently, because of course one of them broke just before we started playing. So the visual -> audio mapping was only half there. It was very dissapointing for us. Also, we got no soundcheck, so the levels were all... over... the place. The lesson to be learned here is to always take as many TVs as you have ataris, so that quick debugging of a setup is not impossible.

Anyway, enough whinging; here are some nice pics, thanks to Tristan Louth-Robins.

The new computer rock aesthetic suggests that the equipment can be destroyed prior to the gig starting and before any sound is created - AKA The Great Un-Pete-Townsend Doctrine. You almost acheived this. I enjoyed the performance greatly. Nice pic.
