Sadly I am working on the London date. :( Saw Morton Subotnick last week so that's something.

A great project and a nice idea, that's for sure.

The link to the vimeo starts with a beat of straight notes as opposed to based on triplets.
But when the keys come in they play real swing time, and keep on doing that.
:o

You could do that as a special trick somewhere in an arrangement, but you can't have two different timing based rhythm layers continuously at the same time.

I can't listen to this, it's terribly unmusical actually.

You doubtless had a nice time at the concert, Ben, so don't let mho disturb your nice experience, but to me this is like (old) Kraftwerk using a swing time beat, but then the other way around :D
Hm, that would make a James Brown with a straight rock beat. Eeek.
