I used to try and talk to them before their encore. Pointless really. Even before they get stuck into the ‘refreshments’ they demand are in their dressing room, they are so hyped they don’t want to listen to me. I try to get them the following day – afternoon obviously – before the next show. It’s still not easy. They don’t want to see data let alone let it determine their set list, their links or their performance. They don’t want to see the captures, hear the words “facial sentiment”. I’m looking forward to working with my new virtual band.
