Edgard Varese - Varese was inspired by Busoni and Debussey!
"I long for instruments obedient to my thought and whim, with their contribution of a whole new world of unsuspected sounds which will lend themselves to the exigencies of my inner rhythm

Performing completely in the midi realm allows not only accurate recording, but also live performance excellence. A MIDI performance can be worked and improved over time, adjusting the mix, adding instruments, or changing instrumentation. It also allows two people to be a full band. Considering the trouble modern club owners have parting with their money, a reasonable solution. A note of history; DJs took much money out of the market. They played for less, and some people didn't mind hearing the same thing that every jukebox in town played, over and over again Also consider the mediocre bands that further distorted the mix. 
Anyway, now good musicians after learning the machines can perform good music. It doesn't have to be the same every night either; modern technology allows for many variations during performance. Add the value of a light show that can be written right along with the music using midi messages, and you have an exciting performance.

   I added tracks with a sequencer in: the RX Band, and Neon Craze.

An example of using this technology in real audio format is below. It is a cover tune by Brian Mcknight, from a rehearsal, with Vonne Andring singing. Probably our second rehearsal together, with me playing drums live, the potential is evident.  Very short example of sequenced songArranger, Producer: Vince Schaefer
