case in point: steve roach, an ambient electronic musician (of prolific
output) is someone who i will generally no longer go and see live, because
his pieces are impossible to perform live. he ends up mostly just running a
mixing desk and adding a layer from time time. even in context of st. mary's
church in philadelphia, where you can lie on the floor and zone out, its
really just not worth my time - i get a better experience listening to mr
roach at home (in bed, or in the studio/office - ardour owes a lot to him).

however, on one occasion he did a show here in philadelphia at st. mary's
where there was a Q&A session, and i absolutely went to it. it was great. i
even put the "its not worth me seeing you live" perspective to him, and he
was very understanding :)
