Here is the full cut of the livestream. What you are watching on this video is exactly what the audience at home would have been seeing. (stream starts around 15:20).
In terms of planning the visuals for the how, I wasn't specific for every song. I know Emily was lighting it and she was going to 'busk' it. Busking on lights is when you are programming as you go- we have pre sets made for the moving lights and if you want to change colour or move or create an effect then you just push the buttons to tell it to do so. It's not simple or easy, but Emily is very, very good at it and she knows most of my songs already so I trust her judgements. I was specific on only a few things, one being the song waiting - I want it to be subtle up until the end when its a Big Bang and I'd like the lights to help carry that. Unfortunately this didn't happen as I'd of liked because Em had to tend to a tech issue during the song! C'est La Vie.
I also asked for the song 'Hey Dude' To be as simple as possible - no distraction in the form of moving or flashy lights - I think she absolutely nailed it.
So having seen the success of the quality of broadcast, I have forwarded the idea to Ratio that we approach some appropriate people about making this a regular thing. perhaps I could host a Friday night of live music with a guest performer each night. We are also discussing the funding, we feel like Arts Council Wales would be really interested in this platform as it's (from what I have seen) the only professional live stream environment available to South Wales that isn't costing an arm and a leg to run. The set up we have is essentially a studio theatre with HD TV quality streaming availability - I imagine there will be plenty of interest in it, so maybe we could make it more than a music platform? Maybe like a magazine show of sorts, a South Wales Blue Peter for everyone. Who knows? Exciting none the less.
