Emancipator opened the main stage, and with Ilya Goldberg on the violin, the show began. Starting things off mellow, Douglas Appling, the brains behind the trip-hop operation, never dropped any sort of massive banger. Emancipator isn't about the bangers; it's about grooving along with uplifting beats and occasoonal melodic vocal samples.

Goldberg provided an eerie violin on certain tracks, either strumming or plucking his violin along a down-tempo beat. The duo maintains a perfect combination of organic and electronic implementation -- a great pre-cursor to both Eoto and Lotus -- and the crowd ate it up. The filling venue swayed to-and-fro and more or less just enjoyed the backing art of a beautiful Colorado sunset.


CRITIC'S NOTEBOOK

Personal Bias: Eoto at City Hall Events Venue for New Year's Eve in 2010 was one of the coolest shows I've seen to date.

Random Detail: The projector gave out a few times during the Eoto set, but the music was so good most people probably didn't notice.

By the Way: Zebbler is a force of light. His vision for a visual production exceeds that of anyone else in the game.
