Perfectly agree with that.
Working with an musicians allows you far more concentration. It's simply more useful than just improvising everytime, having a completely "new" music set everytime.
Plus you don't have to stretch your material to 6 hours. You work more straight to a point.
With you on the musician thing.
I tour with a 12 piece band on the "world" music scene in the uk and so my role is very much one of complimenting the sound rather than creating it.
That's not to say I wouldn't welcome an AV aspect in resolume but the sound response element is much more important for me.
The band play 100% live with no MIDI.
So, in the future?
More intuitive software and dedicated controllers?
Equal billing for VJs?
