During the final performance I used all the recordings I had made throughout the night, played back on the two cassette players and from the laptop. I manipulated the sounds with basic eq and panning on the mixer, changing tape speed and some use of the delay pedal both for echo and looping. Some sounds were also sent to the third speaker, which resonated the marbles within the cone.

A recording of the final performance will be available here when I have the oportunity to upload it.

Below is a clip of the performance. Many thanks to Louis McDonald for filming and uploading.

A photo of my workspace with the final setup for the live performance. Playback of sounds through two cassette players and laptop; mixer with delay unit on the effects send; and third channel of audio sent to a small amplifier and a fifteen inch speaker cone filled with marbles.
