Colourful Sound, Hamilton, Montana

Everytime I attend a live music performance involving sonic reinforcement, I'm pleasantly distracted by the colours and patterns of the audio equipment. Cables curving in random, sinuous patterns, pots and sliders in orderly rows, gear lights rhythmically blinking - it's a veritable visible feast of the small-scale variety.
I also give a glance to the actual gear, since my husband is constantly on the lookout for updgrades to his system that also simplify set-up. Digital versions of traditional gear are becoming increasingly commonplace. For a show at the Stevensville Playhouse this week, my husband & his cohort are borrowing my laptop, on which they've installed a mixer program, just to have a backup. Progress never sleeps.
