    good responses Perhaps not quite as purely graphic orientated as it could have been given more time but I think what was achieved in the time was well worth the effort and went some way towards what I envisaged The particularly late in the day idea I had this time round being that all the visuals for the Scratch My Back part of the show would be generated by the sound of the orchestra and or Peter s vocal sort of like cymatics only digital using processing I wanted the show to look sound like this great machine had awoke and the orchestra was its beating heart Each track then responsible for showing a different emotion of the machine with the colours red white black being dominant throughout to tie in with all the print art Alas doing this sort of thing live was deemed a little risky so a few magic tricks had to be done as to appear it were I really wanted the audience to leave with a real sense of having seen something very different for this sort of show something that would perhaps be more at home in a nightclub as opposed to a classical
