This was a very successful show for myself as well as over 100 fans who attended the 2nd Anniversary of the River Canyon in Bailey, CO on the evening of May 19, 2012.

One thing was obvious, they had never seen anything like what was presented ever before, save for my YouTube videos. Lots of curiosity about the Starr Labs Ztar and how it worked. I presented this show in two 45 minute sets:

Set #1:

1. Canon Rocks! (Canon In D)

2. Lift Off 

3. Across The Universe

4. I'll Be Back

5. Caravan

6. Strawberry Fields Forever

7. Rain

8. Liberty

Set #2:

1. Ticket To Ride

2. Things We Said Today

3. Classical Gas

4. Key West Sunset

5. A Day At The Beach

6. Apache

7. Walk Don't Run '64

8. The Bridge Across Forever

9. Joy Of Man's Desiring

10. Telstar


The new arrangements of Beatles songs from "Ticket To A Remix Universe" were very warmly received. It seems that everyone is a Beatles fan.

The highlight of the evening as far as audience response were "Lift Off" and "Joy Of Man's Desiring" which got a huge response of recognition. Presented with something new and "out of the box", this audience was engaged and "present".

Equipment setup was as follows:

Starr Labs Ztar Z7s with AirPower Wireless

Akai APC40 Ableton Live Controller

MacBook Laptop running Ableton Live 8.3 with Propellerhead Reason 6. Soft synths for this show included Native Instruments Kore 2, Reaktor, Arturia Moog Modular V2.5, the MOTU Symphonic Instrument and Reason's Thor, Malstrom and Subtractor. Amplification was a Roland KC350.

As for the River Canyon Gallery, they provided a successful celebration of their second Anniversary and sold many many works of art. Director Ellen Campa was a gracious hostess and MC and all were thrilled with the turnout.

A splendid time was had by all.
