“A.I. Performance: The Art of Live Automation takes you through a series of steps for any novice to become technically proficient enough to script and pre-automate live shows which rival the biggest stars. Using equipment you already own (or even suggesting potential new purchases to help you achieve your goals) this book will teach you everything you need to know to control almost every piece of equipment in the venue, without you having to touch it once during the performance.
Throughout this guide I will be showing you how you can make readily available technologies work for you, and even go beyond that which it was originally intended in order to make some truly spectacular performances on stage. By utilising this technology you can begin to orchestrate live shows that almost rival the professionals whom have a large technical team behind the scenes, only you won’t necessarily need any of them. Consider the notion of having a robot replace a back-stage technical team and how you’d programme it to control the lighting, smoke machines, stage fans, video projection, broadcasting cameras, social media, backing tracks, FX units, and your entire backline (amplifiers, synths, drum brains etc.,); everything that constitutes the equipment used in a live show.
The goal of this guide is simple: to help you make your shows more entertaining. A.I. Performance will revolutionise how you approach performing which will in turn grow a loyal, enthusiastic fan base for your act.”
