RE: Scratch/DJ's/gestural control

I think that a 'performance' can become much more
interesting, intimate, enveloping, and interactive
when the audience can directly map visual gestures
with the creation or manipulation of the sound.  

I have a depressingly underutilized Buchla Lightning
II (http://buchla.com/lightning/index.html) that I'm
planning on beginning to work with again soon to this
end - hoping that air-drums/tibetan bells/etc. coupled
with spacial CC controllers will prove engaging.

Maybe I'll have my act together (pun intended) to play
at Loopstock II next year <g>.
