thanks for coming to the issue project room fundraiser friday. i hope that if you were there that you liked the show.
as i’d said, it was my first time doing a seated electronic/ambient show. the touring for the upcoming album (barring sporadic dj dates) will be with a full band and multiple vocalists, although i might incorporate some elements of the electronic/ambient show, as it enabled me to perform some songs i’d never been able to perform before (like ‘god moving over the face of the waters’, and other instrumental songs from the past).
ok, it’s late, time for bed.
Toby said, “he played for a shade under 2 hours as 300 Brooklynites crammed into 232 4th Street. The minimalist performance space comprised Moby’s turntables, headphones, a mac computer and a projector screen. Moby’s set featured tracks off his new album as well as an abundance of classics from his back catalog. The set finished with a thumping airing of GO..and so he did.”
Moby has another NYC live appearance coming up. He, along with SNL’s Simon Rich, will be part of “a live broadcast of radio station 91.1 FM WFMU’s ‘7 Second Delay.’ Featuring WFMU’s Ken Freedman and Andy Breckman.” It takes place at the UCB Theater on May 20th and tickets are on sale.
We previously mentioned Moby’s new David Lynch-directed video that was screened at the Issue Project Room show – we posted it already even, but in case you missed it… That video, and more pictures from the show, below…
