More Vložte Kočku tour photos

All the photos in this post are from the concert at Anděl in Plzeň on Thursday night. (I had drawn there for Vložte Kočku’s gig in January and it was nice to make this return visit. The club has a very good atmosphere and there is a little balcony giving an unobstructed view of the stage – ideal for Tagtooling!) The programme featured the same music as at the launch of VK’s Hedvika LP at Akropolis but this time Dima took lots of photos of my drawings.
Below – drawing to accompany the song, ‘Život’.

Above – the strobe bleaches the drawing and illuminates the band.
Below – two photos of the drawing showing the beginning of a slow fade to black.
And then for the song, ‘2 nebo 3’ another monochrome drawing…Because the projector beam covered a larger area than the screen, it was possible (as above) to use Tagtool drawing to selectively ‘light up’ the musicians.
Below – three photos of my next drawing – to accompany ‘Kroky II’…

….and three for ‘Ryby II’ – about fish swimming underneath the ice.

For the last group of songs in the programme I used full colour – first building an abstract background for the heads I would draw for, ‘Kostra’..
The transparency effect in the image below was made by starting with layers of opaque colour and then releasing and doing a partial fade of the drawing.Of course it is very easy to ‘lose’ more of the drawing than you want using this technique! (And it took me some practice to learn to control this effect.) But then it’s also possible to draw into the faded image – as in the detail below.3-P1080369The concert ended with ‘Hradec’ – a song that was obviously a favourite, so I ended with this piece of fun abstraction to match the mood of the audience.
