Dead Can Dance

The concert was wonderful.  As opening night for a world tour, one could expect glitches and there were same.  Almost all of it was new to me, and it was all really good.  I was particularly impressed by the stage lighting, which used some very modern technology (multicoloured LEDs) in a huge collapsible webbing for some very interesting effects.

David Kuckhermann opened – he has THREE hang drums, which is like have three Mona Lisas, the damned things are so rare.  It wasn’t even an instrument prior to 2000.  I learned of it in 2003 and have wanted one ever since, so I was drooling from a great height….  Hm, he has on line lessons, including for cajon, an instrument that’s already in the house…. nice.

The Orpheum is a lovely venue.
