n Play @ LuxeBar
Thurs 30th November 8-11pm
Bar is at 446 Beaufort St, Mt Lawley
Picture Show, and DJ Jim Cook from Loungerama.
first Vintage AV night with
Special Guests Chrism + Fenris was bloody brilliant. Our
newly restored 1984 Fairlight CVI blew up in dramatic
cloud of smoke, but apart from that, I think a fun time
was had by all. And what a crowd, thanks to RTR
for the on-air mention on the day of the gig.
will be bringing along a bunch of vintage equipment to
demonstrate, including our 1994 Fairlight CVI, a Beta
video player, Panasonic AVE-7 video desk, a Hama video
desk, NEC Multisync MT-1030 projector, old video camera....
and the other guys from Eyelid
Picture Show will be bringing 3 full keyboard synths:
Ensoniq VFX (1989)
Kawai K1 (1988)
also be using an EMU Orbit synth module (1995) for their
drum sounds. It will be controlled by a 5 year old korg
sampler which will only be used to program the beats NOT
to generate any sounds.
will be using a Boss 6 input mixer to wrangle all the
audio inputs, if we can manage to make it work - just
arrived off eBay and it's 110v power :(
Jim Cook from Loungerama will be spinning vinyl (BYO Blondie
EPs etc), but it would be great if we could also get some
live action with synths, drum machines etc. We figure
anything over 10 years old counts as "Vintage"
in the field of electronic gadgetry :)
you could get us the tech specs of your gear (especially
video) so we can hunt out adapters, experiment with inputs
etc, we'd appreciate it. We will be using our oldest video
desks and projector, so no s-video and no laptops (aaaargh!).
one modern allowance is that we'll still be using Luxe's
decks and PA, as it would be way too much hassle to be
purist about finding a vintage PA and audio mixer. And
they used to weigh a ton.
if you can't bring equipment, why not bring along a few
of your favourite old vinyl EPs and Beta or VHS exercise
