I feel I have w good head start on the project. I have always been clear on what I wanted to do and what I wanted to research and I also feel the skill set I have will stand me in good stead.
Over the last few weeks I have been looking closely at the set list. That is the bread and butter of the performance. There are so many other factors to consider and these are coming up each and every time with my concert observations. One of the important factors is in a good sound.
Not every venue with be able to house a PA system but they if they can I have the facility to bring a top of the range PA System with me. The system I have been using is a BOSE .
Bose are recognised in the industry a one of the very best sound system you can get and you can really hear how clear it is when singing and playing your guitar through it.
One of the concerts that are really success every time I play there is Leuchie house. There are a number of factors that I have been able to recognise contributing towards this. One of them is that I can have the PA there. The room is big and very reflective so it fits really well to have everything go through it and add some EQ and reverb to the performance, which helps add a ambience factor to the concert.
A critical reflection is that if I can use the PA I will no matter how many people are in the audience. It really helps add to the experience.
