The Null Device
Tonight I went to Pony to see Stuart from Boyracer/555 Recordings' solo act,
Steward. He rocked. Most of the set featured backing tracks off a CD, but
nonetheless, the live performance was inspiring.
He started off by playing these toy drumsticks (you know, the ones with the
speaker box on the belt which makes electronic drum sounds when you shake them)
over a track, then went on to play guitar over a few others. Towards the
middle of the show he went walkabout in the audience with a
QuickShot toy four-track tape deck and a microphone, and at the
end, he used one of those dashboard toys which makes ray-gun/explosion sounds
to get weird sounds out of his guitar. The entire performance was done with
an inspiring amount of spirit and energy; it made me want to pick up my
guitar and start doing weird things to it.
