But why? I’ve often thought, “Why do we go thru all the dust, heat & mud just to stand in a field and watch gigantic TV screens? Live music is about immersing yourself in the total experience, not watching TV. Radiohead has solved this conundrum by breaking the the visual aspect of their show into frames. Frames everywhere, as in gigantic flat screens that moved and flowed like a living Cubist painting. Scott Shuffitt’s awesome photo at left comes as close as anything I’ve seen in capturing this effect which forced the audience to give themselves over to the total show. They mixed the set up thoroughly, hitting several tracks off of their latest, King Of Limbs but also throwing in older “standards” like The Gloaming from Hail To The Thief and Idioteque from Kid A. A favorite moment happened when Thom York got us all clapping along to Everything In It’s Right Place. Everything was in it’s right place, despite the usually cool temps. I crawled into my sleeping bag and dreamed like Picasso for the rest of the night.
