For those who couldn’t get in this is what happened…
We curtained off one third of the undercroft and kept people in close proximity, sang close-up in harmony, quietly in the middle of the crowd. Moved away, sang through mega phones, sang on top of ladders…..then sent a surround sound aural spitfire through the room…..then we led the audience into the blacked out two thirds of the room. A drummer and guitarist screeching loudly whilst being pulled on a trolly up the length of the building, the audience following…the musicians join the band, we perform a song, the audience are led out.
This was the our opportunity to fly the new lighting technique into action.
So darn tired of flashing lights on a band, thou they do work…what else is there?
Thin beams of light….slide projectors moving on cranked handles with hand cut slides of paper and string slicing our faces….
