It seem i'm very active in the forum!! Now you can see in my profile, one of the pics when i met him! The camera wasn't ver good, but for it is gold!!
2 questions about Pg speech before Signal to Noise. As you know Peter communicates in the language of the country he visists.
Before this song Peter told in Spanish a story about Signal to noise. This Story was related to a thousands of mirrors targeting the same point with force to melt the iron.then he talked about mobile phones.But i did not understand the whole story.damn it!! His spanish was good, but not at the end of the story.
-Which is the story?
-What is Signal to noise all about?
I wish you all the best for this weekend!!

Hola, supongo que dijo lo mismo que en barcelona, aun que aqui hablo en catalan.
Tiro de chuleta, pero supongo que lo tenia escrito foneticamente y la verdad es que la pronunciaciÃ³n era buenisima.
Yo te escribo lo que escuche.
He escuchado que en los pirineos franceses existe un horno solar, son miles de espejos que reflejan la luz del sol.
Solos no hacen gran cosa, pero todos juntos enfocados en un solo punto alcanzan una temperatura de 4000Âº, lo suficiente como para fundir acero.
Despues hablo del tema de los moviles como un simil.
en esta epoca de tecnologia todo el mundo puede estar comunicado, mucha gente tiene un movil. Cada uno de esos telefonos moviles viene a representar un espejo.
Literalmente no me acuerdo de como era, pero basicamente el tema era que la comunicacion es un emisor-receptor, igual que el espejo del horno solar, la idea es enfocar toda la comunicacion en un solo punto para poder cambiar algo. Una voz dispersa quejandose no hace nada, pero 5000 personas manifestandose ya es otra cosa.
Por cierto, signal to noise fue mi favorita. para mi fue brutal.
Una pena que hubiese tan poca gente, creo que menos que en madrid, la publicidad que han hecho del evento ha sido bastante floja a mi parecer. yo me entere de casualidad

Gabriel's voice was great, no sign of cold at all.
The sound during the first part (scratch my back)was not too good. The bass was over gabriel voice some times when the orchestra play loud. Another minor problem was the screen, that had some BIG dead pixels.
They fixed the screen and the sound before the second part,the sound was awesome for the rest of the night, but the screen failed again few minutes later.
But the rest of the night was GREAT.
San jacinto, and signal to noise made the crowd stand up.
The best version of signal to noise that I've ever seen.
curiosity, Gabriel let the orchestra alone during the end of signal to noise, he didn't say the "receive and transmit" during the end. Only the powerful orchestra playing. shivers on my skin.
PD. there was a guy at the end row shouting PETEEEEER during the songs. WTF?? do it before or after, please.

"curiosity, Gabriel let the orchestra alone during the end of signal to noise, he didn't say the "receive and transmit" during the end. Only the powerful orchestra playing. shivers on my skin."
PG did that in Leipzig, too. I guess he originally did that to help give his voice a break, but the orchestra really went for it and it turned out to be a fabulous change.
Thanks for all of the news!
