Introduction of new technology — radio, television and film — has had a dramatic impact on the way artists entertain, he says. “The technology made the art forms fragment into their own little pockets and Id like to sort of bring it back to the time before that, when before those technological innovations we had the live experience and that was it,” he says. “For our shows, people can go back to that space.”
