i’ve got an upcoming performance lined up and it’s been a long time since i’ve played out.
i’m thinking about how to present myself and my work and i’m looking for your advice.
i tend to prefer when performers don’t talk before their set, but i’m thinking i’d like to address the audience to create a connection. this particular performance is a very small, initimate loft show. i was thinking of suggesting the audience close their eyes during the set, but i feel it might be a bit hokey, cheesy, or pretensious. thoughts?
i don’t like making any sort of request of people and tend to prefer people enjoy things as they see fit.
any other advice on setting a mood for deep listening?
