Howarth had taken his music on the road for the first time in 2008, when he was invited to participate in a Q&A session at the HALLOWEEN "30 Years of Terror" convention, held at the Pasadena Convention Center. Rather than talking about this music, Howarth played it live, using the Logic digital audio workstation software application on his laptop along with a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) keyboard. The event was a success and as a result Howarth wound up developing a full concert of his music for a show in Kraków, Poland in 2010. He met an Australian video artist named Jade Boyd, and she created unique video artistry based on the films which was projected during subsequent concerts. "It's a keyboard and guitar show," Howarth said. "It's me with my laptop, MIDI keyboard, and guitar, with Jade's video playing behind us." Since then, he's had sold-out shows at such venues as the 2011 Unsound Festival in New York City and Synthplex in Burbank, California, and returned to Europe for concerts in Geneva, St. Petersburg, Toronto, London, and Paris. The music on this album comes from that 2014 concert, held at the historic Hollywood Theater in Portland, Oregon. Howarth recorded the show using a board mix [allowing the live sound to be mixed in real time during the performance], with a digital tape recorder placed on the stage to record the live audience ambiance, which was added to the final mix. The vinyl album of that concert was initially issued on the Wyrd War label in 2018, with a pressing of 500 copies that sold out quickly. BSX?Records is now pleased to present and preserve this concert for the first time on CD as we celebrate the music of Alan Howarth Live!
