Performance with Computers/DJ-ing
I'm curious as to how people are using their computers for live
How do you manipulate it? How much is live vs. sequenced/pre-recorded?
there any DJ/Turntablists mixing with vinyl and a computer? I've thought
about trying to incorporate my G3 Powerbook into a live situation but I'm
uncertain as to what a performance would constitute beyond pressing play
twiddling with on-screen faders. As a DJ, how does one perform a track
you've recorded and released live? For instance when the Chemical Brothers
perform, what exactly are they doing? I know Portishead press-up vinyl of
the beats and other materials they've recorded but what is the process of
working with such material. As I said, I'm curious.
Please no slander or flame wars over the validity of such performances, all
such debates are simply displays of subjectivities in conflict. I would
to hear from people about actual techniques, process and performances.
