it can be the biggest hurdle

Performing your music to an audience is always a daunting experience, whether you’ve never played live before in your entire life or if you’re on show 52 of a non-stop tour. There’s always that potential for things to go wrong, for your gear to fail or for the crowd to simply not get what you’re trying to do with your music. It stands to reason then, that preparation is key to feeling more comfortable on stage and thus being able to enjoy the experience – which ultimately translates to audience satisfaction. Martin Delaney (perhaps the most ‘outgoing’ of our writing team in this regard) has penned our cover feature this month, which elucidates numerous aspects of going live; from setting up your gear to fine-tuning your performance style. Elsewhere this issue,…

SCHOOL OF ROLI ROLI, the innovative company behind the Seaboard and Blocks, has announced its first product without a squishy surface which could also develop your keyboard playing skills.

LUMI has 24 miniature keys and thanks to the MagSafe-like technology debuted on the Blocks range, multiple units magnetically click together so you can expand your keyboard, two octaves…

go live

Playing your own compositions live to other people can sound like quite a daunting prospect, particularly if you’re planning on playing alone. But there are multitudes of practical (and psychological) approaches that can make that transition relatively painless. Firstly, we should state here that playing live shouldn’t always mean playing a prearranged set. There are many ways to improvise and expand on your existing compositions – and getting your hands dirty and jamming is part of the fun. Improvising and making instinctual, reactive decisions when performing is a very important aspect of being a musical performer and mastering the confidence to do this can assist your growth as a musical artist – it develops your listening skills fast. For producers, a set that’s a bit loose in structure and leaves you freedom…
