In my last post, I offered links to Thomas Dolby’s recent appearance on NPR. In this follow-up post, I want to mention that he has produced an audio CD, DVD and podcast with live material from his 2006 ‘Sole Inhabitant Tour’.
I recently eceived the DVD as a gift and have to say its simply fantastic! I was in the audience during the show in Denver last spring and think the DVD does a nice job of capturing the feel of the show. In addition to concert footage, the DVD contains the following special features:
- Thomas Dolby: An Interview with DAvid Hoffman
- Layering.looping technique explained
- Story behind the songs
- A voyage around his rig
If your a Dobly fan, a digital musician, a computer-based producer, or a someone interested in performing live with computers I think you’ll find the DVD both entertaining and informative.
Below I’ve provided a link to the DVD on amazon. www.thomasdobly.com has a list of other outlets as well as a cool video podcast section.
