With Vložte kočku @ Akropolis

Last night Vložte kočku celebrated the launch of their LP ‘Hedvika’ with this special concert at Palac Akropolis in Prague. For this performance, as well as my Tagtool drawing, Patrick, Dima, Lukas and Peter were controlling the full range of their stage lighting – and together they provided a really dramatic visual accompaniment for the music. Dima was all the time busy with the lighting so I don’t have many photos for the blog – these ones are for the song, ‘Život’.

Below – the lighting focuses fully on the musicians and for a few moments the drawing ‘disappears’….
….only to be magically revealed again – a nice effect, where it is the lighting that creates this ‘fade and return’ of the drawing (which of course isn’t possible to do using the Tagtool, where the ‘fade’ feature is always permanent!)
Below is a photo I took of our monitor on the lighting console.I took the photos below during some of the songs where I wasn’t drawing. I think that only video could capture properly the full range of dramatic effects of the combination of the changing lighting in Krystof’s big electronics case reflected in Dima’s mirror, the stage lights, incandescent bulbs and moving lights, LEDs and strobes – but these photos at least give some idea of how the lighting completely changed the atmosphere and appearance of the stage.

To end this post here are some photos of another of my drawings – this time to accompany the song, ‘Kostra’.
