MUSE - H.A.A.R.P.
I finally got a copy of it and its been on repeat ever since.
First impressions: just look at the above still, its fuckin' luscious! There's a rough kind of doomsday, radiation, biohazard theme to the concert and the video footage has been toned to match. There's a lot of grain and a lot of stark DV wash outs. It reminded me of a few movies filmed on DV actually, "28 Days Later" being one, but this time with a better plot. STALKER might be a better comparison.
Even the fans look luscious! The editing is a mixture between the quick slice n'dice of the Hullabaloo but with the more traditional feel of the Absolution tour DVD. I guess they are trying to cater for those who hated one or the other.
It's time to spot the gear. This is NOT Chris Wolstenholm, the unofficial 4th member of Muse, keeping it all together in the background. Lets have a closer look.
Right I see a Novation ReMote SL61 anyway :) and theres a Zero hiding somewhere in the background too :) Korg Kaoss Pad, a Nord of some sort, a Mac running Logic, etc. etc.... did I mention a Novation ReMote SL Zero :)
Oh in case you're wondering, HAARP stands for High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. All I know is that Nikola Tesla invented it and someone built it.
