Re: Should ambient music be performed live?
I'm not saying that people don't seem to like it. I guess I just spent
playing in pop/rock bands where the band is the show. With ambient music,
really not the show any longer. That's OK. To be honest, I think it
to be a better performer, but I can't help but think. If people aren't
me, why am I doing it live?
So, just to clarify, I'm not talking about the environment. Believe me,
environment at the rave (it was a "chill" downtempo rave) was great. You
couldn't imagine a better gig. I'm just wondering if this genera is the
terms of live performance.
