“disguise’s Notch integration and the way it handles Notch was very important and made it the best choice for the tour,” Asad says. “The Notch designer, Lewis Kyle White is a veteran in this game, and we worked back and forth to establish the Notch looks.” Lewis Kyle White of Pixels & Noise also created a custom Max MSP app that allowed control of both the disguise servers and Notch Block via OSC, which became a vital part of our touring setup and live workflow.
Asad, who has worked as a system engineer in the IT world, came to touring as a musical artist himself designing his own tours and running others. "I first saw disguise being used on the ‘Game of Thrones’ orchestral tour in 2017 when I worked as a network engineer. I fell in love with it and took all the disguise classes; it was easy for me to transition with my background," he says.
