A.I. Performance

"A.I. Performance: The Art of Live Automation" by Chris Frost

| Website | Facebook | iTunes| Kobo | "A.I. Performance: The Art of Live Automation takes you through a series of steps for any novice to become technically proficient enough to script and pre-automate live shows which rival the biggest stars.  Using equipment you already own (or even suggesting potential new purchases to help you achieve your goals) this book will teach you everything you need to know to control almost every piece of equipment in the venue, without you having to touch it once during the performance. Throughout this guide I will be showing you how you can make readily available technologies work for you, and even go beyond that which it was originally intended in order to make some truly spectacular performances on stage.  By utilising this technology you can begin to orchestrate live shows that almost rival the professionals whom have a large technical team behind the scenes, only you won’t necessarily need any of them.  Consider the notion of having a robot replace a back-stage technical team and how you’d programme it to control the lighting, smoke machines, stage fans, video projection, broadcasting cameras, social media, backing tracks, FX units, and your entire backline (amplifiers, synths, drum brains etc.,); everything that constitutes the equipment used in a live show. The goal of this guide is simple: to help you make your shows more entertaining. A.I. Performance will revolutionise how you approach performing which will in turn grow a loyal, enthusiastic fan base for your act."

The Directional Intention

"The Directional Intention: The Art Of Being In Harmony With The Indivisible" by Imad A. Fadol

This short book cuts through the invisible thread that connects our hopes, dreams, and intentions to the modern definition of Quantum theory, through ancient historical practices, where they revert towards the direction of the Indivisible. The aim of this book is to enable you to initiate a contact with the Indivisible by all means to create the necessary balance for attaining your ultimate dreams, hopes, and grace. Throughout this book, it’s always going to start with you. What you do in life for yourself and for others is what matters, not what you think, say, or even believe. If you understand this, I invite you to listen when there is nothing but silence, because it is in the silence where everything is created. This is one of the highly effective Spiritual Awakening books for anyone interested in knowing more about the other realm.
