Regular contributor Gaz Williiams has been busy. He's part of the band playing in the major production in Paris at the Theatre Chatelet called Pop'pea which is a contemporary reworking  of Montiverdi's The Coronation of Pop'pea.  Its being produced as a Rock Opera with a 6 piece band and requires a significant amount of technology to run smoothly.

With world class players involved such as Pete Howard - drums (The Clash, Queen Adreena and  Eat), Angie Pollack - keyboards (Peter Gabriel, Goldfrapp), William D Drake - keyboards (Cardiacs, Sea Nymphs), Max la Villa - guitar (Paul Weller, Perry Farrell), Chris McComish - drums (Kurran and the Wolf Notes, Joyland)  and of course Gaz Williams on bass guitar, its a considerable project.

One of Gaz's other tasks was to set up the music technology used to enable the performance, which was originally scored using Cubase and Reason into a workable system.

We'd asked Gaz  to try and film us a tech rundown, which he did - with the help of the theatre's press department - thanks folks!

Tickets are pretty much sold out  - the show runs from 29th May to the 7 June 2012 at Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.
