Luke Abbott Beats Norwich Arts Centre!
Music made on a computer played live you ask. I say that it effects the brain and emotions as much as any music. For an hour Luke Abbott filled the auditorium with brilliant electronica which did a lot more then make girls dance! I can say that the variation in the soundscape that he created can at moment make you want to full out dance without a care in the world to tracks that puts your head in a space of relaxation. The abstract visuals on the giant backdrop perfectly accompanied the music.
The Stage time for Luke Abbott was 10.45 - 11.45 and at exactly 11.45 he shut his apple mac shut and this was met with universal applause. He warmly appluded the audience back, a nice touch. By the end of the gig I felt like my breath had been taken away!
I recommend that you check out Luke Abbot's album Holkham Drones and be prepared to go on an amazing sonic journey.
