On Sept 6th 2018 I did a performance at a private event (audience approx 500 people). I performed Ethnicolor 1 part 4 (2017 Liebana/Masada version), Chronologie II (which I did back in 2014) and Stardust (completed in approx 4 days, that was a crazy sprint!). It was my first performance of this "magnitude" and obviously it was not without problems (I had several audio dropouts, thanks Windows 10 ver 1803...) but overall it was a success. The audience was obviously very diverse and obviously not JMJ fans but they seemed to enjoy it, esp. the Stardust butterfly dancers.
Don't mind Ethnicolor, I had less than 48 hours to prepare it (and I almost scrapped it, but it was such a good opening, so I kept it - I knew that that audience wouldn't notice). I improved it in orders of magnitude (it's unrecognizable) for my Sept 2019 performance, which I'll upload when I'm done editing it.
- my full album version of Chronologie II:
- Stardust multitrack demo: (I did it as I had had people accusing me of "playing JMJ CDs", well, I guess that's the ultimate compliment?)
And fun fact about Stardust: I changed it just before the show when StÃ©phane messaged me "you might want to change the choir sound... here's the patch we used in the original Stardust"
