Whoops well it's taken me a while to update the blog. I'd like to say I've been busy but seriously I've been taking time out, lots of other things have been taking up my life lately and so I've had both my Synoiz stuff and Neonyte stuff on the backburner for the past month.
I've been asked to do another live performance as part of a fundraiser for a new Mitsuko Studios film on August 4th, since this has just been confirmed I thought it was about time I updated this blog with how the last gig I did in Sunderland in May went. Well frankly it was amazing, thank you so much to everyone who came along, it was great to get so much support and to have great support acts like Anguaji (first performance of her material ever! To the backdrop of My Neighbour Totoro by Studio Ghibli!) and Edinburgh based electrosexuals GhostAttak (to the backing of Tetsuo The Iron Man - bit of a jump of styles there!).
Here's the setlist for those who were asking:
Synoiz - The Borough Sunderland 19/05/2012
- Shock! Horror! (Music Video)
- Ever Emptiness
- The Open Sky
- Long Lost...
- The Esoteric Order Of Dagon*
- Getting Safer (Music Video + Tea Break)
- You Don't Even Remember Me**
- Another World
I was so glad with how this performance went, there were hitches and technical issues (all of my triggers reset half way through Another World so I was hastily fixing that up before too many people noticed that the mid-track silence wasn't intentional haha) but everyone seemed to love it especially my new approach to performing Getting Safer.
Some of the backing videos that I flung together for the show have been uploaded to the Synoiz YouTube account so you can watch them there, I think my favourite is the one for Another World as it's pretty creepy in its own right.
Once again thank you to everyone who came, thanks especially to the Borough manager Grant and Lolly for making the whole thing a reality, us music types rely on great folk like you! If you can make it to the next show on the 4th of August I'll see you there!
