for saturday evening, we need to work out our clothes. the second set will most likely involve more projections directly on us, so we need to have predominantly white for that (yes, blake, black slacks are fine). but what shall we do for the earlier set? pick a dominant colour?
the visuals guy will be to the side of the stage area, where people can see him. he basically creates abstract imagery by feeding sound into his machines and turning it into colours, shapes etc. he also does the opposite, turning imagery into sound so, for the second set, his audio will be mixed in with ours, while the cameras filming us will also be fed into his machines. so there may be times in that middle section where we can even let him take over. again, his sounds are basically abstract noise. feel free to use any of the little acoustic things (percussion, bells etc) to make any noises at all you like, and also feel free to interact with tanya as she dances - playing along to her as she plays along to us etc etc.
lastly, lindsay and elle of actual russian brides are in the middle of a thursday night residency called thursday switch at a venue in darlinghurst. we can choose any thursday night to play during january. let me know if there are any anyone can't do and i'll use that to deduce which one to ask for. bec - did you want to try for one while esther and alex are around?
