Call me a soft southerner but I only attended one of the three Scenius performances. The thought of them jamming away for three two hour sets fell into the "too much of a good thing" category.
What was it? It was a college lecture beamed back in time from 2050 where they were trying to piece together the last thirty years of music after it had all been erased in a big accident. What was it really? It was an jam session featuring Brian Eno, Karl Hyde, the Necks and a few others. As with this sort of thing, there were no tunes. There were fast ones, slow ones, loud ones, and quiet ones. Some of it was drums and loop based and some wasn't.
The one that started on two pianos was quite good and watching the two screens above the stage gave one the feeling of watching on DVD as opposed to being in the hall. I am not sure Karls lyrics really added that much to the tunes but every now and then he would get something going with Brian which was interesting.
