Re: One-man bands live...
Just a random question, maybe this topic will stay blank (though I hope it won't haha ^^)
well, do you know one-man bands playing live ? Most of those I know use other musicians (Nargaroth...). But I wanted to know if you have heard of uncommon ways of playing live for such musical projects..
I hope my question is clear ^^,
If you've got some ideas, it'd be great too... I'm thinking about my own musical project.
(I'm sick & tired so please forgive my grammary mistakes, if any)
Every or almost every noise artist is a one-man band. Same goes for most electronica. You could learn a few tricks from these different scenes, when it comes to playing live alone. Nadja is a great example from metal: they are two, but on stage, he really is alone doing everything except for the bass which is played by his girlfriend. So he's playing with all sorts of looping devices and pedals. And after a while, you feel like there are 20 guitarists on stage, 15 keyboarders and a few samplists. I don't think there is any technical limit as to play live alone, in 2010, except if your music really needs a drummer.
