For shows #11 & 12, I mixed it up a little bit with a live performance using only Propellerhead Reason/Record. I’ve been wanting to do such a set for a while. This week everything fell together (or apart) because I had little time to prep. I didn’t have other pre-recorded material I felt like sharing, and with the 80+ degree weather and 60% humidity in the studio, I was not interested in setting up my usual guitar-based loop-pedal monstrosity.
Reason is very liberating in terms of sound creation and manipulation. Even though I relied heavily on third party loop libraries and material from Computer Music Magazine, this set was very fun and the level of expression by the end was to my liking. I now have a base line for future experiments like this.
Based on the encouragement on the electro-music.com chat board, it is likely I’ll do this again next time.
