"A little after midnight the pounding beat ceased, and a man in
a three piece suit (Rich McIntry) appeared on stage to announce:"Here
it is, the moment you've been waiting for". A roar of approval
came from all 4000 mouths.( Were all those people Amiga owners?) The
tall graceful form of Vincent John Vincent, clad in a white jump suit
appeared. He stood in front of a video cameera, and poceeded o move
his arms. A colored shilouette appeared on the large screen and moved
as Vincent did. Totally unprepared for what was to come, the crowd helds
it's breath. A brilliant backdrop of Da Vinci's male figure appeared
with Vincent's shilouette in the center. There was also a series of
colored balls (ICONS) surrounding the figure. As Vincent moved his arms
and touched the empty air, his on screen image toudhed a ball, and sound
came forth. The balls were instruments, played through the Amiga and
MIDI! The chords of Thus Spake Zarathustra flowed over the hall. He
bagan to dance, playing music and controlling graphics by his movements.
Scene-after-scene-appeared. A backdrop of a Mayan temple with brightly
colored fruites and birds as ICONS was followed by a maze of brick walls
with pots of colors arranged on the sides. The scene changes, sounds,
and timing all were responding to the artistic expression of the dancer.
He could as easily grab a handful of magenta to paint the sky, as play
hard drum riff. When the performance was over, the crowd roared for
more. This experience had been a first for everyone in the hall. Sound,
sight, movement, and artistic vision had been combined (through Amiga
technology) into a new artform."
