As a new photographer around Hy-Tekk I wasn’t sure what to expect at these shows, but I have yet to leave one anything less than elated. WE HAD A BLAST! Just another baller night at the Granada in great company with great music.
During a Billboards Touring conference, Skrillex represented the Electronic Music Community. He was there to talk about live performances. Sonny goes into his own views on live shows and mentions not only his own process, but brings Deadmau5 into the conversation as well. Being from both realms of music has allowed Sonny to get a unique perspective on the topics that are brought up.
“I don’t just hit play on the space bar and let it play the whole set. I mix every song–and I do mess up. I’m changing my set every night and producing new records on the tour bus to test out — so it is very much in the moment.
Deadmau5 has a programmed set, with MIDI triggering all of his lights. It’s a beautiful show, but his show is the most “press-play” show there is because he’s running Ableton Live. I’m not against it…But people like to see him, because he’s Joel. He’s an artist and he has a personality. I think that’s the superior part about being an artist.”
Friday night at New York’s Terminal 5, Julian Assange gave a speech via Skype. Right before M.I.A. was to enter the stage, a video appeared on the screen with Assange greeting the fans. M.I.A. has always been one for freedom and reform, so it is no surprise that she would pull something like this.
Assange is wanted for leaking thousands and thousands of pages of classified American government and military documents. M.I.A. previously contributed original music for Assange’s TV show, The World Tomorrow.Also, She titled her mixtape Vicki Leekx after WikiLeaks.
