SoundBitch's new motor

Bb.jpg

Life moves on and Soundbitch had to give up the company car. After 20 years of driving lease cars with free insurance and servicing, We finally had to buy another car. Enter the little silver shit box from japan, It has been described as 'interesting looking' but is more ugly than ascetically pleasing. Surprisingly roomy inside we can now pack more equipment in larger quantities to make the venue's look bright and shiny. 

With luck you should see this little silver box at lots of other burlesque events around the north island, Next step vinyl and magnetic signage for advertising of all our ventures.

SoundBitch's Toys

SoundBitch is still buying toys to make the show look and run easier (for him anyway), the current toy is computer control of the stage DMX lighting system.  This has progressed from Arduino devices to FTDI-DMX interfaces and computer software. Any show producer or DJ/lighting tech knows the joy and frustration of turning up to a new venue to find only a few lights work or even better a lighting system so complex that you need three hands to mix the lights for the show. Enter SoundBitches little toys, the basic setup of the Fixtures is all you really need and any lights that you bring with you can be added to the end of the chain and easily controlled. Nothing is better than a site with 30+ channels of lights and only a 24 channel mixer installed. As long as you know the address layout and fixture type you can control it all much easier from a laptop.

Ok the transitions are quicker and you don't get that traveling mix from red to blue on only two of the three lights, or an incorrect mix on one light because in the dark you are moving the wrong slider because your fingers have the cramp, but on the other hand the lights work and mix the way you intended in the first place.

I know that I can buy an open DMX adapter from ENTTEC but I wanted to build one and play. That and I'm cheap and wanted to do this with Free software and  be able to modify anything that I wanted. Also the ability to run on Mac or Windows is a plus, as a lot of the hardware does not have drivers for both operating systems. That said the basic device cost me $24 NZD rather than AU $70 +gst and shipping. See I told you I was cheap. 

New toys will continue to turn up at shows as we progress but we will continue in our attempts to make the ladies look pretty and the show as enjoyable as possible for all involved. 

If you want to discuss these toys with SoundBitch just corner him during the break or after the shows. Or even leave a comment here on the website and he might get back to you, you never know your luck.

The Opening of a New Chapter

This Website and presence marks a new chapter in the life of Caburlesque. Mainly that It is now solely owned by LadyTramp Designs Ltd. and no longer associated with the previous partner,  Harem Entertainment.  That said we are still determined to bring you the same or better quality of show that you have come to expect and know from Caburlesque.

The first of the shows that we will bring you is the Return to the Royal Gala show, taking place on Saturday the 7th of June at The Fringe Bar in Wellington. featuring our favourite MC and Queen of Entertainment, Sadie von Scrumptious, who will be introducing all of the Duke's,  Dame's, Princesses and Princes on stage and keeping the castle walls from collapsing around us.

But what of the Fool, He is still imprisoned in the DJ booth and is there to be jeered and booed if he does indeed make a fool of himself.

Since this is a primarily a blogging page on the site, We will attempt to keep you up to date with changes and indeed shots and comments from the show, Oh the joy of mobile devices, we hope that you enjoy your time with us and no one screams 'Off with their Heads'.
