Comments : This is probably one of my most anticipated fall shows as I previously managed to miss Charlemagne every time he played in my vicinity. It was definitely worth the wait. As we were waiting outside for the doors to open, Charlemagne came and introduced himself to us. The evening started at 8:30 sharp with a laptop performance, starting very minimally and gradually turning into something very powerful. Then we were treated to a video projection of Charlemagne wandering around a building and screaming, shot from point-of-view. This was immediately followed by a piano piece. The whole evening wrapped up at 10pm. Both laptop and piano performances were absolutely amazing even if Charlemagne did not drink a whole bottle of cognac, as urban legend dictates.
