Saturday night (7th November) saw the second of my RESONANCE live electronica events in Coventry.
I started RESONANCE earlier this year as I was finding it very hard to get an opportunity to perform my material live, most venues not quite understanding the difference between live electronica production and DJ-ing, or just not having an audience-base for anything other than guitar bands, acoustic folk or singer/songwriter outfits (not that there’s anything at all wrong with this – it’s just that I don’t fit any of those categories and would personally like to see a broader range of live music available to the public at large).
I hooked up with EGO Arts Venue, who already run some incredibly eclectic music nights, to provide a vehicle for bedroom producers, DJs, electro-pop bands, anyone with an electronic element to their music to perform in front of an audience.
And … it’s working. On Saturday our artists put on a blistering and incredibly professional show that left our audience utterly gob-smacked. If you weren’t there, please make sure you’re at the next one because these guys truly deserve to be heard.
Alex also has more photos and short video clips on his Instagram page.
Huge thanks to Matt (DJ Big Xylo), Jason & Emily (MCUltra), Alex (A Small Glass Ghost) and all the staff at EGO for making this a night to remember. Here’s to the next one!
