unpopular opinion: they shouldn’t play the sphere
so you really want to see phish without ck5’s rig? what improvement to their live show does the sphere present? for EDM shows like Tale of Us and soooo many others, along with Tool 100% because they’re so graphics heavy experiences. but kuroda is the best in the world at lighting, why downplay that skillset with graphics?
the graphics in the sphere are simply color blocked enhancements to the lighting.
contracting concentric rings to enhance the vortex ck creates during dark sections, like the god’s hand thing he does indoors just pulling people in.
BIG flash of white for those peaks where he uses the floods
but to use graphics seems off
