黑色俄羅斯-P!SCO@2013海洋音樂祭 (by 2013貢寮國際海洋音樂祭)
The hazards of live sound mixing…
It wasn’t until this, the final song of P!SCO’s set at Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival 貢寮國際海洋音樂祭, where Rachel Hsu’s guitar was brought into the mix. (The song is called Black Russian)
All the other songs had no guitar heard from the PA system, just whatever stage amp volume was audible if you were sitting near the front. I’m sure the band didn’t even know this was happening until after they finished.
Singer Cat Lun left a comment on another video, wondering if the sound engineer thought it was an ‘air guitar contest’!
Team P!SCO always bring a dedicated group of technicians to the gig, but they must not have ventured out into the crowd, because I’m sure somebody would have told the sound engineer to bring up Rachel’s channel fader on the mixing console, or connect a cable, or un-mute the channel, etc..
And maybe that is what finally happened, 21 minutes into a 25 minute set. *sigh*
