The standout tonight was a duo called Deprogram. who performed some great electronica with live keys and vocals over prerecorded tracks. The backing tracks had been recorded on and were being played back using Ardour running on a Linux laptop.
The performance was simply stunning. The fact that Ardour, Jack and other linux software was used in its production and performance is a *huge* validation of what we have been doing all these years.
Congratulations to everyone involved in making audio on Linux happen and thanks to Nick and Mary of Deprogram for showing us how its good this stuff actually is.
The performance night was arranged by Simon Burton and Denis Crowdy.
